Where The Pie Came From

My husband loves apple pie, it is favorite dessert, but I never seem to have time to make it for him. So I came up with this recipe that cuts down on the time I spend in the kitchen, but taste just as good. Now I can make him a apple pie anytime he wants one. If friends and family drop by for s surprise visit you can make this up in a hurry and they will think you have been in the kitchen all day. I like to sever mine with ice cream and berry.

      Possible, but it will be an inferior podruct. Pie crusts should be worked as little as possible (not overworked). You want to avoid developing the gluten (like you want with a bread). A bread maker has a very small agitator and it will take a lot of mixing to make a pie crust.Lastly, pie crusts are best made by cutting up the butter into the flour (not stirring it into the flour). Food processor blades work well for that but a bread maker will not cut the butter into the dough. It will just mix it in.

      a breadmaker works the dough too much so you would get a tough crustFood Processor Pie Crust1 1/2 cups plain flour1 stick, less 1 T. VERY COLD Butter(unsalted is best, if you have it)1 T. Crisco1/2 tsp. salt4 to 6 T. ICE water1- 1 1/2 tsp. vegniar or lemon juiceUse steel blade and put flour, salt, Crisco and butter (in chunks) in bowl.Process with on/offs until mixture resembles a coarse meal.Add the ice water and vegniar or lemon juice in 1 2 T. amounts, running machine a couple seconds between additions.Stop processing as you see it BEGIN to form a dough ball.Remove and chill 1 2 hours before using. I know that a lot of people make up several recipes and freeze it to use as needed. Just make sure to not over process it.
