Cream Cheese Pie Crust

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 3
Categories: Crust-Pie / Desserts / Pies & Pastries

4  c  all-purpose flour
1 1/2  c  cold unsalted butter, in bit
8  oz  cream cheese, in bits

In a large bowl, mix the flour, butter and cream cheese with your fingers or a pastry cutter. The dough will first resemble a coarse meal, then it will adhere together to form a ball (this should take no more than three or four minutes). Pick up any bits of dough with the ball and divide the ball in half. Flatten each half into a disk shape, wrap, and refrigerate for at least thirty minutes. You can freeze the dough at this stage in plastic bags. It will keep for two months and should be thawed at room temperature for one hour before rolling. Makes enough for one 10", double crust with leftovers for decorations, or three 10" single crust. By "Lloyd A. Carver" <> on Jan 5, 1996
