Tip for Pie Crusts and Pastries

Keep some butter or margarine in the freezer. When you make a pastry, grate the butter or margarine needed into the flour and salt mixture. Then, it will need just a little mixing before sprinkling on the water in sections. It keeps the pastry dough cooler and eliminates much of the handling so it is very flaky.

The fastest way to make a pie crust I found is in the food processor. It seems I use my food processor more to mix things than I do to chop things. It mixes the fat with the flour in a couple of seconds and I add my liquid through the top. It takes me longer to get the ingredients out and put away than it takes to make it!
