Vanilla Bean Pie Crust

This is a simple, buttery, sweet pie crust that compliments any flavor. It’s my go-to for my deep dish pies. I’m picky when it comes to crust. Most store bought crusts tend to be blan, or salty. This is the perfect balance. I make my pie crust a day or two before I cook my pies. It breaks up the cooking.

Vanilla Bean Pie Crust

By: Bekie A

1 cup butter cubed

1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp vanilla

2 tsp molasses or honey

1 tsp sea salt

2 1/2 cups of flour

1 egg

1 vanilla bean scraped

1 cup ice water with 1 tbsp vinegar 

Directions

Whisk flour, sugar, and salt together. Cube butter and cut into the flour mixture using a pastry cutter, or fork until it looks like sand.  

Make a well in the center. In another bowl, whisk eggs, vanilla, and molasses. Pour into the well.

   

 Lightly stir mixture. Mix vinegar into the ice water. Pour into the pie crust. Work with your hands, and knead dough until smooth. Form into two balls. 

   

 
Place in a buttered freezer bag, and chill until ready to use. Place into the center of a pie pan. Begin pressing into the middle and work up the sides of the pan. Use a fork to press the sides of the dough.
