Preparation

  1. Prepare Dough

    Combine salt and flour in a bowl. Grate cold butter over the flour mix. Combine gently with hands. Add ice water (no ice) and mix. Wrap in plastic wrap and store in fridge for a minimum of 15 minutes.

    • 1 1/4 cups All Purpose Flour
    • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
    • 1/4 pound, frozen Unsalted Butter
    • 1/4 cup, ice Water
  2. Preheat Oven

    Preheat the oven to 375F.

  3. Roll Out Dough

    Grease a 9-inch pie dish. Once dough has rested, gently pound and roll dough into a disc about 1/4" thick allowing for about 1" of overhang. With the help of the rolling pin, lift the dough into the pie dish, pressing firmly against sides and bottom of dish. Trim overhanging dough & prick bottom of dough with a fork. Cut a piece of parchment paper and insert it on top of dough. Pour in pie weights or dried beans to keep dough from puffing up and losing its form while cooking. Bake at 375F for 35-40 minutes or until bottom of pie shell is golden brown. Remove dried beans and place back in oven for 5 minutes.
