Pie Dough Using Boiling Water?

Does anyone have a recipe for pie dough using hot or boiling water? I had a recipe and then misplaced it. I could rework the dough and it still came out flaky.

Hi Viki! I found a couple of the hot or boiling water pie crust recipes on the site. Hopefully, one of them is what you're looking for.

Hot Water Pie Crust 1

3/4 cup shortening
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon milk
1/4 cup boiling water
2 cups all-purpose flour

In a large bowl, combine shortening, salt, milk and boiling water. Whip with fork until smooth and creamy.
Add 2 cups flour and stir with round-the-bowl strokes until all flour is incorporated.


Makes crust for one double crust pie.

Hot Water Pie Crust 2

1 1/2 cups shortening
1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup hot water
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon cornstarch

In a large bowl, combine shortening, vinegar, and milk. Pour in hot water and whip until mixture is smooth.
In a separate bowl, mix together flour, salt, and cornstarch. Add flour mixture to shortening mixture and stir just until dough comes together. Roll out dough between sheets of wax paper. If dough is difficult to work with, refrigerate before rolling.
