Easy as Pie

Where did that saying ever come from anyway? Who ever thought pie making was easy? I never did until I attempted making it Angie’s way from over at Children in the Corn.
I’ve been making pie crust for about a year now with NO failed attempts. Bread making…..well that is a different story!

So here is the secret…

* 2 1/2 cups flour
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon sugar
* 8-10 tablespoons of water
* 2 sticks of butter

Place the first three ingredients in your food processor, pulse for a moment.
Like my new dishes? I picked up a set for REAL cheap at a local thirft store. Beats the mismatch dishes they replaced! I considered starting a collection of fiestaware until I priced it out. I quickly changed my mind.

Soften the butter, cut it up into several pieces then add to the food processor.

Mix until it gets crumbly.

Then add water, mix
Form ball, cut in half
Wrap with saran
Refrigerate for 2 hours

Easy as pie….Maine Man took over from here.

There is something sexy about a man in a kitchen. Isn’t there?
