How to Make Pie Crust

The tastiest pies are made from the crust up. In this video, you’ll learn how to make homemade pie crusts in seven easy-to-follow steps. Discover the proper order for mixing together ingredients and learn how to cut in the fat, and why a combination of fats sometimes makes the best pies. You’ll see what the mixture should look like when prepared just right, so you’ll end up with a wonderfully flakey pie crust. Learn how to avoid adding too much moisture and overworking the dough, which will create a tough pie crust. You’ll see how to roll out and gently lay the pie crust in the pan, and get great tips for trimming and crimping the edges, for fixing cracks or tears in the pie pastry, and for preventing shrinking during baking. Learning these easy techniques will help you bake the best homemade pies—from apple and cherry pies to pumpkin and pecan pies—even chicken pot pies!

I like wetting bottom ring of first pie to join together to layers. And adding egg wash to top for golden brown goodness. I don't usually refrigerate after adding filling,I go straight to the oven. To each her own.
