I am a mom of 4. I love to cook and try new recipes.
Every once in awhile a new recipe is tried and the family often responds with "mom..it's a keeper" meaning add this one to the family recipe book. So here I've compiled them all in one spot so they're easy to get to and add to. Hope you enjoy them as much as we have, and maybe they'll be keepers for you as well.

Easy Peasy Pie Crust

1 1/8 c. all purpose flour
1/2 t. salt
1 t. sugar
8 T. cold unsalted butter cut into 8 pieces or 6 T. coconut oil
3 T. cold ice water

Combine flour, salt and sugar in a food processor.  Pulse 1-2x.  Add butter or coconut oil, mix for 10 seconds until it looks like cornmeal.  Place mixture in a bowl and sprinkle with cold ice water.  Use a spatula to make into a ball, add more ice water if nix seems dry.  Wrap in plastic wrap and flatten into disk.  Freeze for 10 min.  or refrigerate for 1 hour.  Remove from freezer or refrigerator.  Place on wax paper and roll out between 2 sheets of wax paper.
