feedfeed Pie Crust
makes 3 double crust pies, or 6 single crust pies
7 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
4 tsp salt
2 1/4 cups butter, cubed
1 cup ice cold water
1 cup ice cold vodka (straight from freezer works best)
To make the dough, set the cubed butter in the freezer for at least one hour before making the dough. When butter is frozen, add 4 cups of flour, sugar and salt to a food processor. Pulse a few times until well combined. Add butter and process until incorporated and the butter is broken into pea-sized clumps. Add the remaining flour and pulse a few times.
Dump contents of food processor into a large bowl then drizzle water and vodka over the flour mix and fold together gently until the dough starts to come together, adding more ice water by the tablespoon if needed. Gather into a ball, then divide into 6 portions. Form dough into discs and wrap with wax paper or plastic wrap and place in a freezer safe baggie. Set in the freezer until ready to use. Just thaw in the fridge overnight the day before you want to assemble the pie.
