Dutch Oven Pie Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups of unrefined flour
  • 1TBS unrefined sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • dash of salt

STEP 1 – Start the charcoal briquettes so you will have hot coals to bake your pie.

STEP 2 – Make the Crust

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until you have a ball of soft dough. Once the pie crust mixed, roll it out to the proper size. If you are using parchment paper OR tin foil to line your dutch oven during baking, tear off a sheet bigger than your dutch oven. Push the parchment paper down inside your dutch oven and trim down the sides so there is no excess sticking up above the top of the dutch oven.

Remove the parchment paper from the dutch oven and roll the pie dough out to cover the majority of your parchment paper. I don’t take the time to make fancy edges on my dutch oven pie crusts but I do like to make the edges look somewhat even by forming the edges with my hands.

To prepare in advance… make the pie crusts at home and at this step roll them up in the parchment paper to be carefully transported in the cooler up. When it was time to start baking, simply unroll it and move on to the next step.
