Our renovated crust works with any filling. If you need an uncooked crust, eliminate the cooking step and fill and bake as directed in your recipe.
3 tbsp(s), chilled and cut up
2 tbsp(s), or 3 Tbsp (depending on dough)
- Preheat oven to 400ºF.
- Combine flour and sugar in a large bowl or food processor. Add margarine and process, or mix together with your fingers, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add cold water, one tablespoon at a time, and process, or mix, until a manageable dough forms; turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll into a 12-inch circle.
- Press dough into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie pan or removable-bottom tart pan; prick the bottom all over with a fork, cover dough with foil and fill with dried beans or rice.
- Bake 10 minutes. Remove beans and foil and bake until crust is golden brown, about 20 minutes more. Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack. Yields 8 slices per crust.
