Kitchen Tip Tuesdays: (Homemade) Frozen Pie Crust

linked to Tammy’s Recipes

I have never used store-bought pie crust.  Making pie crust at home doesn’t have to be hard, but the hardest thing for me is deciding how much I need to make!

So here’s a great trick I learned from my mom that enables zero-waste homemade pie crust.

When you make pie crust (like my favorite recipe – Foolproof Pie Crust), freeze the extra.  Get it out a couple hours before you need it, and save time the second time you make pie.

Here you can see that in my freezer door I have several balls of frozen crust dough from when I made Sweet Potato Pies.

I make the typical new-wife mistakes and have burned my share of cookies. I like a cold house and a hot shower all year long.

    I have a way to improve upon this! Put your ball of pie crust in a ziplock bag. Seal it. Then, roll it out flat, right in the bag. Not only does it store more easily/compactly, but it’s so much faster (and easier!) to thaw out when you need it.
