Working with Pie Dough {Video Tutorial}

Posted on

Photos by me, made into a collage by Laura Flowers.

Although pies certainly have their place in the fall and winter, I find myself making more of them during the warmer months, when fruit is plentiful, and my family begins to favor it over cake.  I’m getting ready to post another summer pie recipe, but thought I’d first share a video tutorial on working with pie dough that I made last summer for The Cooking Photographer and never got around to sharing on my own blog.

I  can hardly claim to be a pie master, but with as many pies as my family demands, I do feel pretty comfortable by now when working with pie dough.  I realize pie dough scares some people the way yeast bread used to scare me, and I hope that this video might help you with whatever difficulty you have had in the past.  This is just the way I do it, and it works for me, but once you try it you will realize in time what works for you.  If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!

I used this recipe for the pie dough in this video.  It is my favorite and the one I use if I have time to make my dough from scratch, otherwise I go for Pillsbury!

  1. I hate, hate, hate making pie dough. And I do not throw around the word hate too often! I am the worst and it always turns out to be a sticky, gooey mess. I’m saving this and will do it sometime, though you better be ready to head on over to get the goo off my hands if it doesn’t work! :-)


  2. Very cool! I’ll have to watch this tonight when I get home from work.


  3. Very informative V! Not sure if I have the patience though, I kinda’ like the ones you buy premade :) I was hoping the triple berry pie recipe was gonna’ be here! ;)
