Ingredients
Ingredients
  • 1 ¼ Cups All-purpose Einkorn flour
  • ¼ tsp real salt
  • 3 Tbs coconut oil solid
  • 3 Tbs unsalted butter solid
  • 1 Tbs raw, organic apple cider vinegar
  • 4 Tbs cold water

Instructions for Single, Baked Einkorn Flour Pie Crust

  • In a medium bowl, mix flour and salt together
  • Using a pastry blender, cut in butter and coconut oil until the flour mixture resembles coarse crumbs. If you use a mixer or food processor, be sure not to over process. You want to keep the butter as cold as possible.
  • Add the apple cider vinegar and mix in thoroughly. Now carefully add the water 1 tablespoon at a time until a ball of dough forms.
  • Cover the bowl and put the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface until it is 4-5 inches larger than your pie pan. Rotate or flip the crust to re-flour your surface and the crust to prevent it from sticking.
  • Give the bottom of your pie pan a light dusting.
  • Carefully roll the pie crust over your rolling pin or gently fold it into quarters. Then gently lift it and unroll it into your pie plate.
  • Gently flute (fold the excess dough under itself) even with the pan. Now you can crimp the edges with your fingers or use a fork to mark the edge.
  • Prick the bottom and sides of your crust generously with a fork. This will prevent the crust from rising in the middle, causing peaks and valleys in your crust.
  • Heat the oven to 425 degrees F
  • While the oven is preheating, put your pie crust in the freezer or refrigerator to keep the butter and coconut oil chilled.
  • Bake the pie crust for 10 minutes until your crust is golden brown or to your desired browning.

    Notes

    Einkorn Flour doughs are moister and stickier than you're used to. I know it's tempting, but DO NOT add extra flour. Stick with the recipe and you'll be delighted with the outcome.
