EASY PIE CRUST
#11
  Re: (...)
Most of you are probably great pie makers, but in case there are other folks like me, I just saw this and thought I'd share. I am pie-impaired, so a fool-proof crust is great for me. Kenji, who developed CI's great vodka crust revised it for Serious Eats. The slide show is great and the recipe could not be clearer. Anyway here is the link to the explanation and the recipe, the link to the slide show is at the top of that page.

I converted the slide show, including images, into a Technique in Living Cookbook. I would be happy to share it with those folks who have LC if anyone would like it. I can export it in MC 1-4 or 5-9 but for MC but you won't get the images. (I guess MC does not import images in one go like LC does).

Interesting - Although I've found that since I don't make pies as often as I did when family was home, without the feel that I had, I can't make as good a piecrust. So much of pie crust making is in the feel.

Those darn pictures makes me want to make a pie!!

Thanx Cubangirl! Loved it! Great hints for the foodprocessor too. Soon as it cools down enough to run the oven, I'm makin' a pie

Thanks for posting this, Alina. I've never been able to make a pie crust like my mom did, but would like to, so am going to try this method. (Like Cis said, as soon as this heat wave passes!)

Hi Cubangirl,

Thanks for the link to the excellent article on the science of pie dough. I would love the technique that you made from the slide show for Living Cookbook. I am a Living Cookbook enthusiast too---formerly used MasterCook for many years, but switched with the upgrade to Windows 7. You can e-mail me the file at the following: removed for your protection.

Welcome to the forum bfg! I hope you will join in the fun and come back often. It might be a good idea if you edit your post and delete your email from it. You can use the PM option to send it to Cubangirl.

CI's vodka crust works! I first tried it a few years ago, it's good and it works.

That being said, I am not ashamed to admit pulling the red box out of the fridge and minutes later having a pie oven ready is a pretty good deal. So that's what I usually do. But if you're into your own crust, this is a great one to use!

Hahahahaha! Good thing that you qualtifed it as "most of you", Cubangirl! As much as I enjoy baking, I have given up on pie crust. I use Pillsbury Ready Crust for those 4-5 pies a year that I make and it works just fine. Life is too short for the frustrations of crumbling, hard-to-roll, easy-to-tear dough!!!
