My favorite time of year is finally here. There's something about the cooler air that makes me feel so alive. It's like all of that Florida humidity that bogged me down all summer is finally lifted and I feel renewed and lighter somehow. Like I can finally breathe again. Welcome, fall. So glad you're here!
There's more to it than that, though. If you're anything like me, then fall is not only about a welcome change in the weather, it's about welcoming back all of my favorite comforting fall and winter foooood; the soups and stews, casseroles and pumpkin everything. And let's not forget all of the good eats that come with Thanksgiving and Christmas!
Inevitably, you're bound to come across a pie or two this season, and maybe you'll be making a few of your own. If you've always been a pre-made pie crust kind of cook, well, maybe this year is your time to try making it from scratch! It's easier than you'd expect, especially with this food processor method. Won't you friends and family be impressed when you tell then you made your pies completely homemade this year?!
Try out this crust with a sweet pie, like Salted Caramel Apple Pie with Brandied Whipped Cream or a savory pie, like Chicken Pot Pie.
Ingredients yeilds 2 9-inch crusts
