- Karli and Julia


  • 5 c of all-purpose flour
  • 2 c unsalted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • cold water



    1. Measure 5 cups of flour into a large bowl.
    2. Cut butter into 1/2" cubes and place over top of the flour.
    3. Using your hands or a pastry cutter, mix the butter with the flour until it is crumbly and has large (pea size) pieces of butter throughout.
    4. In a liquid measuring cup, add one egg and the vinegar to the cup and give it a whisk. Fill the measuring cup to the 1 cup measurement with very cold water, and whisk mixture together.
    5. Add all the liquid to the flour-butter mixture. Continue to mix with hands until it forms a shaggy dough and starts to come together.
    6. Split the dough in 4 equal portions, and form a disk with your hands. Tightly wrap each disk in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least two hours before rolling it out.

    Storage: Up to 3 days in the fridge or 3 months in the freezer.

    Bake: Bake according to your pie filling recipe.
