How To: Make Pie Crust

We’re entering pie territory here. It’s fall heading into winter, and we can’t be alone in having our thoughts turn to pumpkin, pecan, or pumpkin-pecan pie.

But for some (or so we’ve heard), making pie crust is one of the most daunting of kitchen tasks. The butter at the right temperature! Some liquid–but not too much! Rolling out the dough!

Rather than run for the hills, watch our funny, totally informative video. We give you two ways to make pie crust–the easy way, and the super easy way–so that apple pie, chocolate pecan tart, and this amazingly easy rich lemon tart are all at your fingertips by Thursday, aka the Day of Pie.

From our kitchens, albeit small, to yours,



  1. This video will change my life. I love pie but could never make the shell myself and I don’t like storebought crust. Now I have a choice of two methods and I can see how easy it’s gonna be. Thank you, big girls!

  2. I love the egg shell measuring, great strategy for less to wash. I agree that crust-making seems daunting but in reality is not! I suffer from the fear Phoebe describes but may just get my act together after watching the vid!
