Foolproof Pie Crust in the Thermomix

For Thanksgiving, I made 2 pies because the pastry was just so easy! I didn't need two pies but they sure were yummy in the days after the big feast! This could be used as either a sweet or savoury pie. Each of my pies were single crust so this recipe only makes ONE. I wouldn't double the recipe as it could toughen the dough. Instead, because it's so quick, just make two batches if you need a bottom and a too for your pie. 

210g flour
1tsp baking powder
120g cold, unsalted butter

2 1/2 tbsp ice water 

1tsp sugar

Add flour, baking powder, butter to TM bowl. Mix 10 seconds, speed 6.

Now, knead for 1 minute and slowly add water through the lid (no need to take out the MC, just pour and it will trickle down).

Tip on to Thermo Mat and form into a ball. Roll out to desired thickness (aim for .5cm as it will puff up slightly!) and larger than your pie dish. Use according to your recipe (as base, prebake, as top). 

Happy Thermomixing!
