How To Make Homemade Pie Crust in 3 Minutes (Video) Recipe

This is a quick and easy recipe to make your own pie crust. I usually have homemade dough stored in either my refrigerator or freezer for last-minute dinner items. You can use the dough for savory tarts, fruit pies or the crust for pecan squares just like those I prepared yesterday (I added 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar to the dough to sweeten the dessert a bit). 

The proportions are great for a (9-inch) tart mold (I made an artichoke tart). If you don't have one, no worries; you can improvise a free-form galette without requiring any specific kitchen equipment.

For easier readability, I added the recipe in print below. So without further ado, here it is.

Doogh Recipe (Persian Yogurt Drink) Recipe

If you're familiar with Persian food, you might have already tasted doogh, which is the traditional yogurt  (or curdled milk) drink that accompanies Iranian dishes. It's one of my husband's favorite drinks.

Unlike Indian sweet lassi, the taste of this yogurt drink is unique; it's more savory and tart rather than sweet. The preparation is fairly simple. Just combine, plain yogurt, carbonated water (you could also use still filtered water), dried mint and a few other flavorings. This cold drink is not only refreshing for hot summer days but also can be used as an all-natural nausea remedy, thanks to the properties of the mint.
