Walnut Pie Crust

1. Mix in food processor:

  • 260 g plain flour
  • 40 g walnuts
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 180 g unsalted butter chilled, and cubed

Pulse until it resembles breadcrumbs.

2. Add to food processor:

  • 1 egg, beaten

The dough should come together in the food processor in a kinda scary lump

3. On a floured surface:

Bring the mixture together until it forms a smooth dough. Split into two and form into big coin shapes. Cover each in plastic wrap and put 'em in fridge for at least an hour to rest.


  • Unless your filling is close to ready there's no need to pre-bake this one. Just dump the filling in.

  • Grease the pie plate!

  • For extra good, pre-chill your food processor container and blade and the flour and walnuts. You don't want this dough to get warm or the butter melts and blech.
