  • 1 ½ cups einkorn flour (AP or whole, or any combination of the two)
  • 6 TBSP butter, very cold
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup water, ice cold


  • Add the einkorn flour to a large mixing bowl.
  • Combine the flour with salt and sugar, if you're using it. Mix your dry ingredients until well combined.
  • Cut the butter into small pieces and add them to the flour mixture.
  • Using your pastry cutter or food processor, mix the flour and butter until it resembles coarse sand.
  • Gradually add enough cold water so that the dough comes together. You can briefly use your hands to form a dough ball. Avoid over-mixing to keep the dough as cold as possible. Don't worry if the dough is on the sticky side.
  • Cover the bowl and place it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Make the filling of your choice.
  • Preheat your oven to 375˚F.
  • When ready, remove the dough from the refrigerator. If you're making a single crust pie, cut the dough ball in half and return the other half back to the refrigerator.
  • With some extra flour dust your work surface, and roll the dough out with a floured rolling pin bigger than the diameter of your pie pan. Don't worry about raw edges, you can fix them later.
  • Fold the pie disk in half, place it over your baking dish, and gently press it down. If you're making a double crust pie, repeat the steps above.
  • Pour the pie filling into your pie crust and if making a double pie crust, place it on top. Fix the raw edges and/or create a nice edging pattern.
  • Bake at about 375˚F or until the top is golden brown.
