Sweet pie crust is the way to go. I love apple pie with a sweet crust. I like to double the recipe so I don’t need to struggle with the top.
1 1/2 Cup Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Cup Butter
1/2 Cup Sugar
4 Tablespoons Water
1 – Let butter reach room temperature
2 – In a medium bowl mix ingredients minus water.
3 – Add 1 Tablespoon of water at a time until there is no dry floor
4 – Split in half and form two balls.
5 – roll into a circle and place bottom into 9″ pie pan
I mix by hand with a fork. I find the texture is better than using a mixer or the KitchenAid.
