The only pie dough recipe you will ever need!
Here it finally is! The only pie dough recipe you will ever need! Once you have the basic recipe you can make substitution very easily. So, here it is:
Butter : 150g – 2/3 cup
Powdered Sugar : 95g – 2/3 cup
Almond Powder : 30 gr – ¼ cup
Maldon Salt : 1 g – 1 pinch
Eggs : 58g – 1 egg
Vanilla extract : 2gr – ½ teaspoon
Flour (All purpose or Gluten Free) : 250gr – 2 cups
- Start by mixing the butter, powder sugar, almond flour and salt in a mixing bowl until smooth and homogenous.
- Add in the egg and the vanilla extract. Mix on low until it is fully incorporated.
- Progressively add in the flour while mixing on low.
- Remove the dough from the bowl and wrap in a plastic wrap.
- Keep the dough refrigerated over night.
- The next day, roll out the dough with a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface to a 12-inch circle; about 1/8 of an inch thick. As you roll out the dough, check if the dough is sticking to the surface below. If necessary, add a few sprinkles of flour under the dough to keep the dough from sticking. Carefully place onto a previously buttered and flour 9-inch pie plate or pie ring. Gently press the pie dough down so that it lines the bottom and sides of the pie plate. Remove the excess dough around the sides of the ring. Let the crust chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
- Preheat your oven to 350°F. When the pie crust is sufficiently chilled, line the pie crust with parchment paper, wax paper, or aluminum foil. Fill at least two-thirds full with pie weights – dry beans, rice, or stainless-steel pie weights. Bake with weights for 20 minutes. Remove from oven, cool a few minutes and carefully remove pie weights. Poke small holes in the bottom of the pie crust with a fork and return to oven (without the weights) and cook for an additional 10 minutes, until the crust is golden.
- Cool completely before filling.
