Making your own pie dough may seem intimidating but we promise that it’s not. It’s rewarding! No equipment necessary, you’ll be able to whip up this flakey, buttery pie dough in less than 10 minutes by hand. Using maple sugar instead of granulated sugar doesn’t just function as a sweetener, it adds a more robust flavor profile to the bite. What results is a crust so delicious, you won’t even care about the filling!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour​
  • 2 tablespoons maple sugar​
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt​
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold and cubed​
  • 1/4 cup cold water​
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar​

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, maple sugar, and salt.
  2. Toss in the cubed butter, Smush the butter between your palms to create flattened pieces. This will make it easier to crumble the butter into pea size pieces by hand. Once all the butter is flattened, rake your hands through the contents of the bowl, crumbling the butter and flour across your fingertips until most of the butter is pea sized.
  3. Combine the water and apple cider vinegar in a bowl. Add the mixture to the flour two tablespoons at a time, tossing by hand between additions. Grab a handful and squeeze in your hand. The dough should be coming together. If it falls apart very easily, add a bit more water until it doesn’t fall apart, up to a tablespoon more.
  4. Gently knead the dough together until the butter is streaked through. Be careful not to overwork the dough!
  5. Form into a disc, about 1″ thick, wrap in aplastic wrap and chill for 2 hours before using! Allow the dough to warm up for 10 minutes on the counter before rolling out.
