I've got the feeling that I'm running ALL THE TIME ! ...
Usain Bolt, compared with me, is a slowpoke !
And there's no one... NO ONE at home, to make me climb on the highest step of a podium !
What an unfair life I live...
If one day, someone wants to organize the Housewives Olympic Games, I'm sure, for once in my life, I could try to win a medal !
So, as I'm running all the time between work, school, supermarket, doctors...Etc ... like million other persons, men or women, I'm thinking all the time to "how can I simplify this or this ...".
Usually, I buy Frozen Pie Crust. We can find very good and very healthy pie crust, now. It's a good way to save time.
But one terrible, dramatic day ... I forgot to buy it, while I had 6 persons coming to eat at home.
After 10 minutes of hysterical panic ... I decided to see if Internet could help me.
I went on my computer and began typing : "Very easy and very quick recipe of pie crust with food processor".
And the God of Internet answered me ...
We don't have to keep good things for ourselves . That's the reason why I'm going to share with you this recipe.
You'll need :
- 200 grammes of flour
- 100 grammes of cold butter
- 1 egg beaten
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon of cold water
- A food processor (you can do it with hands, of course. But it wasn't my goal !)
- And if you want to make a SUGARED pie crust (because mine was for salted one), ADD to all that : 2 tablespoon of icing sugar.
Step 1 :
Add flour, salt (and icing sugar if you use it here) and the cold butter cut up in small pieces.
Step 2 :
Mix all that with your food processor, speed 2 (mine has 8 speed), until it looks like a kind of bread crumbs.
Step 3 :
Add the beaten egg,
This is toy of my girl ;) It's very practical, because small !
...the lemon juice,
and the cold water.
Let's miiiiix again ... like we did last summer ! Come on, let's mix again, like we did last year, do you remember when ... Ok, I stop...
Until you have an homogeneous pastry. It's fast enough.
Step 4 :
On a floured plan, make a ball !
Step 5 : Roll it in a cling film and in the fridge for 30 minutes. It will be easier to flatten. Your pie crsut is ready !
Step 6 : With rolling pin, flat the pastry.
Now, I'm going to show you the technic to put it in a pie pan without breaking the pastry.
This video is the third my girl made.
The first and the second, my pastry went in pieces !
After 10 minutes of yoga for me, to prevent the pastry to fly over the window, I think this video can be shared ;)
Finally, TADAAAAAAA !
And the winner is ...
