Contrary to the popular belief, making quick and easy pie crust from scratch is not a hard job at all. It is very much possible to make your own quick and easy pie crust at home and it tastes so much better than store-bought pre-made pie crusts. Always remember to knead the dough with your hands and do not overdo it. Using a tablespoon or two of ice cold water in the dough helps in achieving the best pie crust texture. Before you begin to bake the crust, it must be chilled in the fridge for at least an hour. Lastly, do not add too much water to the pie crust dough as this will make the pie crust shrink while baking. Easy pie recipes such as this one tastes great on its own or with toppings of your choice added to it. Assorted nuts like walnuts, cashews and chopped almonds are good additions to make in this recipe. It’s also a fun way to incorporate extra nutrition.

Some good tips to remember while making this recipe is to use hundred percent pure vanilla extract with no corn syrup or additives. Make sure you cook the vanilla pudding long enough until it thickens before setting it up in the fridge. This will prevent the pudding from turning soupy in texture. Adding cornstarch to pudding can also help in getting the rich, thick texture. It is always better to prepare the pudding from scratch instead of using the store-bought instant pudding that contains artificial colourings and flavours.
