Pat-in-the-Pan Pie Crust

This pie crust requires no rolling pin—it's just simply patted into the pan.—Mrs. Anton Sohrwiede, McGraw, New York
  • Total Time
    Prep: 10 min. Bake: 10 min. + cooling
  • Makes
    1 pie crust (9 inches)


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk


  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine egg and milk; stir into flour mixture (dough will be sticky). Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-in. pie plate.
  • Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool on a wire rack. Fill as desired.
  • If baking the filling, cover edges with foil during the last 30 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary.
