Cookbook: Make it a homemade holiday!
Homemade gifts offer a solution to shrinking your budget and baked goods, especially pies, are a popular choice. Here are a few tricks from The Pampered Chef® Test Kitchen experts to ensure having the perfect pie crust.
•Keep it cold. The secret to pie crust is very cold ingredients. Refrigerate all ingredients prior to making the dough -- even the mixing bowl. Put butter in the freezer while preparing the other ingredients to ensure the fat is completely chilled.
•Skip the mixer. One of the biggest enemies of flaky pie crust is overworked dough. Use a pastry blender or two knives to cut in fat. Dough should still have some pea-size pieces.
