Shortcut Pie Shell
Instead of all-purpose flour this recipe uses biscuit mix to make a puffier pie shell.
½ stick butter
3 tablespoons boiling water
1 cup biscuit mix such as Bisquick
Set the oven to 450 degrees and let the butter come to “room” temperature in a medium bowl. Spray a 9-inch pie plate. Stir biscuit mix into softened butter and use a fork to stir in boiling water. Dip your fingers in flour to press this soft dough evenly into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Flute edges and bake 8 to 10 minutes until it’s golden brown and puffy. Cool and fill.
