If you’re looking for an easy pie crust that comes out perfect every time, this is it. Flaky Buttery Pie Crust is just as it sounds and it’s a delicious crust that’s great for both sweet and savory pies.
The butter in this recipe is the key to a golden brown, flaky crust. If you make this pie crust recipe I swear you won’t want to go back to refrigerated crust (ok maybe in a pinch!).
Can you refrigerate Flaky Buttery Pie Crust?
Yes, you can make the pie crust dough ahead and refrigerate it to roll out later! I’ve refrigerated pie crust for up to a week which is really handy when you’re prepping for a large meal like Thanksgiving or Christmas Day dinner. Just be sure to form the dough into discs and wrap them well in plastic wrap. (see photo below)
I’ve made a number of recipes over the years using this pie crust recipe. These are a few of our favorites: Apple Pie from Scratch, Homemade Chicken Pot Pie and Cinnamon & Sugar Sticks.
