A very easy to make crisp pie crust.

Ingredients of Pie Crust

  • 1 cup flour / maida
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened not melted
  • Salt, a pinch
  • 2-3 tsp cold water

How to Make Pie Crust

  • 1.In a plate/ deep dish sieve the flour and salt together. Make sure there are no lumps.
  • 2.Add the softened butter and mix it together with hands to make a crumbly mixture.
  • 3.With the help of some cold water combine the whole mixture together. Note: Do not knead the dough, it is supposed to be gently combined together. Store in the fridge for 10 minutes.
  • 4.Once this is done, roll out the dough (1 cm thick) on a flat and clean surface. Make sure the dough is rolled in forward direction, do not roll haphazardly.
  • 5.According to the size of your pie tin, cut out the dough and place it carefully in the tin.
  • 6.Place a small piece of butter paper on the pie tin. Place 6-7 dry channas/rajma on it (This procedure is called bake blind. It is important to bake blind so that the pie doesn't rise.)
  • 7.Bake for 5 minutes at 180 degrees.
  • 8.Remove the paper and channas/ rajma and bake it till golden and crisp. Remove from oven.
  • 9.Let it cool and fill the crisp pie shells with a filling of your choice.
