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.

Sweet Potato Pie with Pecan Crumb Topping Recipe

Sweet potato pie is a classic American dessert that is not overly sweet. The texture is similar to a pumpkin pie, but firmer. I jazzed mine up with a little anise extract, other flavorings and a crown of pecan crumb topping. It's a great pie for Thanksgiving, but really, you can enjoy it any time of the year.

I made this for a reader named Bill who e-mailed me a request for a sweet potato pie recipe. If you're reading Bill, I hope you like it!
