We have updated this recipe due to a typo. The amount of baking powder has been reduced to 1/4 teaspoon.
I made this and left out the baking powder because I was afraid it would puff up too much. Even without the baking powder, the crust was so thick that there was no longer space in my 9 inch pie plate for the pie filling and I had to use a different recipe. Sprinkled it with cinnamon sugar, cut it into wedges, and called it shortbread cookies instead. Tasted good, but was impractical as a pie crust. I think it would work nicely as a crust if you cut the recipe down by a third.
Delicious shortbread crust. A few comments, though: 1) yields 2 pies, or one double crust; 2) I think baking powder may be omitted, since the shortbread rises very high and 3) may add 1/2 to 1 tsp salt, to make it even more shortbready.
Quick and easy to make crust. I refrigerated the dough for a half hour before baking, pricked the crust on the bottom to keep it from "poofing" up too much, and added 1 tsp. of vanilla for flavour. Quick, easy and delicious. I agree with the previous review; it yields two crusts. Great with the Fresh Strawberry Pie I.
This recipe provides more dough than will fit into a 9-in pie plate. It would probably work better in a 9x13. I had to cook 7 minutes longer than indicated to get it done & a couple of times had to take it out of the oven to pat down & reshape the rising dough so it would leave room in the dish for my pie filling. It was worth the effort though & went nicely with my key lime pie.
What a simple recipie for crust. Excellent tasting, I could just eat the crust alone. Also the fat calories are not the high.
Very tasty. My supermarket doesn't carry the premade shortbread crusts anymore so I thought I'd try this one. I also added a capful of vanilla to the batter and refrigerated the pie crust for about 1/2 hour prior to baking. I found baking time is more like 15-20 minutes. This crust is great with strawberry pie recipes from this site.
I thought this recipe was delicious. The first time I made it I filled the crust with fresh strawberries, and the second I used dulce de leche ice cream. Delicious!
