Page 9 - Easy Water-Whip Pie ShellEASY “WATER-WHIP” PIE SHELL

RECIPE FOR 9″ PIE SHELL

1/2 cup less 1 tablespoon Homogenized Spry
3 tablespoons boiling water
1 teaspoon milk
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (sifted once before measuring)
1/2 teaspoon salt

This recipe also makes 6 tart shells.

Follow Spry’s “Water-Whip” Method (pp. 6-7). Do not divide dough in half. Shape dough into one round, roll between waxed paper (p. 7).

To make shell and rim, see below.

If shell is to be baked fist, prick all over with fork. Bake in very hot oven (450° F.) 14-19 min.

HOW TO MAKE THE SHELL

Fit Dough Gently Down Into Pan

Fit dough gently down into pan. Trim pastry with scissors about 1″ beyond the edge of the pie pan.

Turn Pastry Back To Pan

Turn pastry back to pan to make fold; raise fold and form a stand-up rim around the top edge of pie pan.

HOW TO MAKE A “ROPE” RIM

Pinch Upstanding Rim Between Thumb & Forefinger

Pinch upstanding rim between thumb and bent forefinger, making sharp crimps that hold their shape in baking.

Prick Shell All Over With Fork

Prick shell all over with fork (if shell is to be baked without filling). Bake in very hot oven (450° F.) 14-19 min.

Shell or Flute Rim: Make stand-up rim as above. Make shell-like flutes by placing left index finger against inside of rim and pinching it outside with right thumb and index finger.

Thimble Rim: Trim pastry even with edge of pan. With thimble, cut tiny circles from pastry. Moisten rim, place circles, overlapping, on rim, pressing lightly to attach firmly.
