This has got to be the easiest pie crust I’ve ever made! It is also delicious because well…butter. I didn’t know you could make pie crust in a food processor, big turns out you can! We got a food processor this summer but didn’t use it a ton, but now we have a reason to use it more. This recipe has just 4 ingredients and really only takes minutes to make!
- 1 and 3/4 but flour
- 1 and 1/2 sticks butter
- Teaspoon sugar
- 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp ice water
Before adding the ingredients to the food processor, I put some water in a liquid measuring cup with ice so it’s really cold.
You will want to have cold butter too, so don’t take it or until you need it.
First cut the butter into slices. Next add the sugar and flour to the food processor and pulse. Next add half the butter and pulse a few times. Add the rest of the butter and pulse until the texture is coarse crumbs. This next part is both a little tricky but also very cool. You think, dough needs to be kneaded, how can it form in a food processor? Well you’re about to find out! Add the water a little bit at a time while continually pulsing. Once all the water is added and you continue pulsing, you will notice the dough start to begin forming. After a few seconds the whole mixture will form a ball of dough and you are done! Take it out and wrap in parchment paper and put in the refiegerator for at least 30 minutes before you need it.
