Saw this simple recipe in the November 2009 issue of Living and thought it’d be perfect for Thanksgiving and holiday pies, like my maple syrup pie.
- 2 ounces (4 tbs) butter, softened
- 3 tbs sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp salt
- Stir together butter and sugar in a medium bowl. Stir in yolk. Add flour and salt, and stir until mixture is dry and crumbly. Press dough into bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie dish. Freeze until firm, about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Bake, rotating halfway through, just until crust turns golden, 20-22 minutes. Let cool in dish on a wire rack.
- Fill with chosen filling.
