Easy, No Fail, Speed Pie Crust Recipe

No-Fail Patted Pie Dough

This easy, no-fail pie crust recipe works great either rolled out or simply patted into a pie pan or skillet. There’s no need to worry about mess-ups either. Simply roll the dough back into a ball, then re-roll it. Easy peasy!

To make a patted crust, place the ball of dough in your pie pan or 8-inch to 9-inch cast iron skillet and pat the crust until it completely covers the bottom and sides. Trim any excess dough from around the top rim of the pie pan/skillet with a sharp knife. Next, add the filling and bake according to the directions.

Basic Fruit Filling

Basic Fruit Filling is a combination of the following:

  • 3 tablespoons minute tapioca (uncooked)
  • 1  heaping tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Spices – usually cinnamon but may vary according to the fruit used

Why A Mini Cast Iron Skillet?

Serving freshly baked pie in a mini cast iron skillet adds a cozy rustic charm and warmth to any meal. Mini Cast Iron Skillet Pies are all equally delicious!!! I recommend making one of each and invite your friends and family over  for a “Taste Testing Party!” Be sure to have some vanilla bean ice cream on hand too!

Fun party idea: bake several of your favorite pie recipes, set up a topping station (various flavors of ice cream and/or whipped topping) and let your guest try a slice of each! How fun would that be???

OR… you can light a couple candles, add a couple scoops of ice cream, grab two forks and share your favorite flavor of pie with your love. Mmm Mmm Good! 

Enjoy!
