Working With Pie Dough
My friend, Laura, The Cooking Photographer, asked me to do be a guest host on her blog for a post on pie crust and I hope you’ll go check it out! I even made an instructional video and you can see the post here: http://www.thecookingphotographer.com/2010/09/perfect-pie-crust.html
I have a kitchen addiction and love to collect & share recipes. My passion is baking but I love to cook as well. The only thing I don't like to do in the kitchen is wash dishes, but my husband generally does them for me in exchange for his dinner.
You after all these years of making pie dough I never gave it a second thought about WHY the dough had to be cold. Mom said Everything has to be cold so that’s how I did it. I’ll check out the video too. Thanks Veronica!
I seen her blog. It as awesome!!! Great post . Great video!! :)
I’m off to check it out! :)
Pie crust is scary to me so this is awesome! thanks for sharing!!! =D
I checked out that site. Great post and video Veronica!
thanks for the great video…. like somebody else mentioned…. learn a new thing every day…. and though I know about most of it…I didn’t know the egg white trick for the bottom crust….
and… sticks of butter…how much is a “stick” cup wise? ….. I buy my butter in one pound bricks.
A stick of butter, at least in America, equals 1/2 cup or 4 ounces. If your butter comes in a block, it might be easier to weigh it rather than smoosh it into a cup–I hate doing that!
