Avoid stretching the dough to fit the pan, as it might shrink during cooking. Instead, use a ruler and measure the crust. A 13-inch diameter crust will fit perfectly in a 9-inch pie pan. Short Cuts If you’re still not ready to tackle a homemade crust, buy a refrigerated prepared crust and start from there. Simpler yet, you can buy a frozen pie crust in a disposable pie pan that is ready to fill. Your house will still smell delicious, and we promise not to tell anyone. Puff pastry and prepared pie filling are also an easy way to make a no-fuss home-baked pie. Recipes courtesy of Joel Ramjohn Basic Buttery Crust 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons granulated white sugar 1 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into 1-inch pieces 1/4 to 1/2 cup ice water Pies are the centerpieces of most holiday gatherings. Instructions: Mix flour, salt and sugar in a large bowl. Using a fork or pastry cutter, mix butter pieces into flour until mixture is coarse and grainy. Add water a little at a time until dough just sticks together. Shape into a ball, cut in half and wrap each half in plastic wrap. Chill 30 minutes before using. Flatten each ball into a disk and roll into circles. Fill and bake according to recipe. Makes two 9-inch pie crusts. Apple Pie With Cinnamon 2 1/2 pounds apples (6-7) 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 1/2 cup light brown sugar 1 tablespoon lemon juice 2 teaspoons cinnamon (ground) 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (ground) 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons cornstarch Instructions: Peel, core and cut apples into slices or chunks. In a large bowl combine apples with the brown sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Leave at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. Strain the liquid from the apples into a bowl and reserve. Remove one pie crust from the fridge. Roll it out on a floured surface, place in pie dish, and trim edges. Place the dish in the fridge. Reduce the strained juice from the apples in a saucepan over low heat with the butter for 10-15 minutes or until reduced by 30 to 50 percent. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Remove the second crust and pie dish from the fridge and roll out the top crust on floured surface. Mix the apples with the cornstarch, add the reduced juice onto apples, and mix.
