The Quickest Sugar Free Pie Dough Ever!

September 23, 2015

Directions

1Mix flour, salt and erythritol together in a bowl.

2Shred butter into dry ingredients.

3Toss butter in flour mixture with your fingers.

4Slowly add spoonfuls of water as you pinch, squeeze, and roll the butter/flour together.

5Be careful to add just enough water for the dough to come together, and not any more. That's why we want to add the water in slowly.

6Cut into two pieces, one slightly bigger than the other (for the bottom and top of the pie shell) and wrap in cellophane (saran wrap). Refrigerate for 1 hour minimum before rolling out with a rolling pin and putting into a pie dish (the big piece of dough goes on bottom).

Ingredients

4 1/4 cups of flour

1 1/2 tsp. of salt

2 tbsp. erythritol

1/2 - 3/4 cup of water

Take your chilled butter and shred it into the bowl of dry ingredients.

(I recommend sticking the butter in the freezer to make this process easier)

I find this works 100x better than a pastry cutter.

Pinch, squeeze, and roll the dough until it turns to a ball of dough.

I recommend a little butter on the fingertips to make it easier to handle.

Wrap in cellophane and refrigerate for 1 hr at minimum if you are going to use it the same day.

Freeze after 24 hours if you are not going to use it right away.

Once you are ready to use the dough, toss a little flour on the table and roll it out to the appropriate size. 9×11 in this case.
