easy egg custard pie

This is not a wobbly egg custard pie, it’s firm but really delicious. I swear I could have eaten the entire pie if I wasn’t thinking of sharing it to my husband and my dogs, but still I ate two-thirds of the pie before my husband arrived from work. I made the pie dough one day before and just put it freezer. Then, I blind baked the pie crust 2 hours before I made the fillings, just enough time to let the pie crust cool before pouring the filling in.

Ingredients:
3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup cold butter, cut into cubes
1 teaspoon salt
16 tablespoon cold water

Directions:

1. In a large bowl, mix flour and salt.
2. Using a pastry blender or hands, cut the butter into the flour mix until the color resembles the cornmeal or yellowish.
3. Add the cold water to the butter-flour mix and bring the it together to form a ball. Do not knead.
4. Divide the dough into two parts. Shape the dough into a flat dish. Cover with a plastic wrap and then refrigerate for at least an hour. The dough can be frozen for future use, just thaw it in the refrigerator before baking.
