Following you will find a collection of my pie dough recipes. These recipes work wonderfully for pies, tarts and mini-desserts. All of these recipes were created by me and used extensively in my bakery. I hope these recipes delight your family and friends as much as they have my customers!
Sweet Pie Dough
A sweet pastry dough, also known as pate sucree, is a rich and sweet pastry with a crisp cookie-like texture. It works beautifully for decorative crust work as it maintains its shape well while baking.
If you are looking for a flaky, buttery and delicious pie dough you have come to the right place! You don’t need special equipment or training to create this crust – just follow the tips in this post and you will have a pie crust to delight your guests.
My preference is a plastic or wooden rolling pin when rolling out my doughs. I find the dough sticks less, therefore allowing me to use less flour. Love this one (it also has rings to help you roll an even sheet of dough):
