Follow your pie recipe to see if you need to pre-cook the pie crust or cook it together with the filling. If you need to cook it with the pie filling then stop when you get to the part about baking it in our instructions.
I highly suggest buying a pie shield. It will save you time and keep your crust from burning. If you don’t have time to get one, then use foil and over the edge of the crust before baking.
Omit the sweetener if you are making a savory pie instead of a sweet one.
If you choose to substitute lard instead of butter then check the chart above for quantities, it’s not a 1-1 ratio.
Using cold butter will make the crust flakier, but use a food processor to really cut the cold butter into the flour.
You can substitute Ghee for the butter…1-1 ratio
To keep the crust from getting soggy, make sure the crust and the filling are both completely cooled before adding the filling to the crust.
To prevent the crust from cracking, poke some holes throughout the crust using a fork
Xantham gum is a must. It’s used to help bind the ingredients together, but you only need a little bit.
If making a savory pie, then omit the vanilla and cinnamon, but feel free to add any other spices including garlic powder or Italian seasoning.
