Making pie dough from scratch shouldn’t be scary. Follow this easy recipe and say goodbye to premade dough.

2 servings 0 min 10 min Very easy


  • 2 1/2 cups (12.5 ounces; 350 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons (25 grams) sugar
  • 1 teaspoon (5 grams) salt
  • 2 1/2 sticks (10 ounces; 280 grams) unsalted butter
  • 6 tablespoons (3 ounces; 85 milliliters) cold water


  1. Combine two thirds of flour with sugar and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse twice to incorporate.
  2. Spread butter chunks evenly over surface. Pulse until no dry flour remains and dough just begins to collect in clumps, about 25 short pulses.
  3. Use a rubber spatula to spread the dough evenly around the bowl of the food processor.
  4. Sprinkle with remaining flour and pulse until dough is just barely broken up, about 5 short pulses. Transfer dough to a large bowl.
  5. Sprinkle with water then using a rubber spatula, fold and press dough until it comes together into a ball. Divide ball in half. Form each half into a 4-inch disk.
  6. Wrap tightly in plastic and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before rolling and baking.

Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes (375F/190C ), until golden brown and dry.
