Lemon Lime Meringue Pie

Homemade Pie Crust


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, cut into cubes and chilled
3-4 tablespoons ice water


In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt.
Add the butter and use a pastry blender or two knives to cut the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
Sprinkle in the water, 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring with a fork until a rough dough mass is formed.
Form the dough into a ball and then flatten into a round disk. Use immediately or wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to two days.
Roll out the dough into a 12-inch round place it in a lightly greased 9-inch tart pan. Trim away any excess dough spilling over the edges.
Prick the bottom and sides of the pastry shell with the tines of a fork. Press a sheet of aluminum foil into the pastry shell.
Preheat the oven to 425 F and bake for 8 minutes. Then remove the foil and bake for another 3-4 minutes or until the pastry crust is dry but not brown. Remove from the oven and set aside.

  1. This looks so so good. Gonna have to try it. I’ve notices you usually use store bought pie crusts. I am a complete failure at pie crusts store bought ore homemade. Do you a good recipe? I will try the parchment paper and beans though!!!

    1. Hello and thank you! I’ve just added a recipe for homemade pie crust below the second picture on this post. Here on my personal blog everything is cook-from-scratch. Over at Tablespoon where I do freelance work for General Mills I do often use Pillsbury pie crusts (which, I have to say, taste excellent). You’ll be happy with whichever route you choose. And if you use the store-bought crust and pre-bake it weighed down with some beans you can’t go wrong – it’ll turn out! :)
