Quick Pie Crust With Only 5 Ingredients—No Rolling Needed
This quick homemade pie crust is buttery and flakey and tastes absolutely delicious! This recipe makes one deep-dish homemade pie crust that tastes so much better than alternatives made with shortening and other preservatives.
I love that it is made with simple ingredients (only 3 ingredients for a savory pie and only 5 for a sweet). You can taste the difference between a pie crust made with butter vs shortening. A flakey buttery pie crust really enhances the flavor of most pies.
This recipe is made inside a large deep-dish pie pan and does not require rolling. Once I have the ingredients out, I can usually make it in under 5 minutes.
This is such a handy recipe to have. Not only is it delicious, easy, and quick, but it will also save money for those who often buy pre-made crusts.

These cookies are your traditional roll out cookie cutter sugar cookie. If crunched for time, you can freeze the dough for just a 15 minute chill time. If rolled out 1/4-1/2" thick and baked right, these are firm on the edge and chewy throughout the rest of the cookie. These cookies are so delicious, my kids were eating them without frosting and coming back for thirds and fourths. It was hard to frost them before they were gone.
