I may have found an easy piecrust.
      07/31/03 01:20 PM

I got it out of Martha Stewart Everyday Foods July/August 2003.

Easy Pie Crust
Makes two
Prep time: 40 minutes
Total time: 1 hour 40 minutes

How to make the dough

1. Mix 2 ½ cups flour and 1 teaspoon each salt and sugar in a medium-size bowl. Cut 2 sticks chilled unsalted butter (I used soybean margarine name brand Willow Run) into pieces. With a pastry blender, cut in butter, working until mixture resembles coarse meal.
2. Add 4 tablespoons ice water; work with hands until dough comes together. If dough is still crumbly, add more ice water a tablespoon at a time (up to 4 more tablespoons). Do not overwork.
3. Divide dough in half, and flatten halves into disks. Wrap disks separately in plastic; refrigerate at least 1 hour.

How to form a pie shell

4. On a floured surface, roll dough into a 14-inch round. Wrap around rolling pin; carefully unroll over 9-inch pie plate.
5. Fit gently into bottom and side of plate. Use kitchen shears to trim dough to a 1-inch overhang; fold under, and seal to form a rim.
6. Crimp rim with fingertips and knuckle. Repeat with remaining dough; wrap with plastic, stack, and freeze.

I have not made this yet. But I am going to try and make it today.

Fruit pie with crumb topping

Serves 8
Prep time: 15 minutes
Total time: 1 hour 45 minutes

Preheat oven to 400
1. Combine 5 cups blueberries or other fruit with ¾ to 1 cup granulated sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, 1-tablespoon lemon juice and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Pour into pie shell: sprinkle with ½ Crumb topping.
2. Place on foil-lined baking sheet in lower third of oven; reduce heat to 350. Bake until fruit bubbles and crust browns, 1½ hours. If topping begins to brown too quickly, tent with foil. Let cool 6 hours

Crumb topping
Makes 2 cups
Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 10 minutes

1. In a bowl, mix 1 ½ cups flour, ¾ cups light-brown sugar, 1/3 cups granulated sugar, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and cinnamon.
2. Cut 1 ½ sticks chilled unsalted butter (I will use soybean margarine name brand Willow Run) into pieces. With your hands, work in butter pieces, until large clumps form. Divide mixture in half: freeze in plastic storage bags.

Other uses
Toast on a baking sheet in a 350 oven 15 minutes, and sprinkle over ice cream (soy of course), frozen yogurt (soy?), and fresh fruit.

I made a cherry pie with the piecrust last weekend. I brushed egg whites over the top crust so it would brown and it turned out really good. The first pie I have had in over 3 years. So it was really really good to me. The cherries were from my brothers cherry tree so I had fresh cherries.
