Pie crust

DSC03939

Here is a very simple and fast pie crust with ONLY Butter !! Oui oui

Now with this crust I make salty pies like quiche or vegetable pies but also French apple tarts, lemon meringue pies, fudge pies. Guaranteed to be Delicious ALL the TIME !

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 cups of flour ( now you can use only white, i often do 1 cup of white 1/2 of whole wheat, or you can do complete whole wheat and add flax seeds)

salt

1/2 cup of cold butter

cold icy water (I put water in a cup and add ice cubes)

I use my food processor.

1. Put flour and salt in a food processor

2. Cut butter and add to flour.
