Recipe Basic 3-2-1 Pie Dough

Resep Basic 3-2-1 Pie Dough

Ingredients :

  • 300 g all-purpose/plain flour
  • 200 g butter
  • 100 g (100 ml) ice water
  • 2 pinches salt (if using unsalted butter)
  • 10 g (2 tsp) sugar - optional for a hint of sweetness

Method :
  1. Add flour to a large bowl. If using unsalted butter, mix in a few pinches of salt.
  2. Cut chilled butter into small cubes and add to flour. Crumble it into the flour with your fingers until the butter turns to pea-sized pieces and dough is sandy.
  3. Mix in the sugar if using. Then gradually mix in the ice water until the dough start to come together.
  4. On a floured surface knead dough briefly until it forms a smooth ball.
  5. Wrap each ball and refrigerate for at least 1 or 2 hours. You can also make ahead and keep in the fridge up to 1 week before using.
  6. Roll out when ready to get baking! On a well floured surface, unwrap one ball of dough, sprinkle with some flour and start rolling out with your rolling pin.
  7. To blind bake for very wet fillings, lay a piece of aluminum foil over the pie crust and fill it with pie weights or dry beans. Bake at 425 F/210 C for 10 minutes or until slightly golden.
  8. Divide into two equal pies if you made the full recipe.
  9. Roll out a little, lift and turn it a quarter turn and roll out more. Repeat several times until it"s rolled out into a 30-32 cm (12-13 in) circle.
  10. Trim the rough edges with a knife so it"s a pretty 30 cm/12 in circle (or smaller for smaller pie/tart pan). I used a big bowl as a stencil to cut out.
  11. Here it is after cutting.
  12. Gently lay the trimmed crust into your pie dish and fold over the excess edges. You can make a crimping pattern or use a fork pattern the edges.
  13. If you don"t need to blind bake, go ahead and add your filling and stick it in the oven!
