Cake Mix Pie Crust
If you are ever in a rush and need a pie crust but you don't have the time or energy to make one from scratch or you don't want to run to the store to buy one, just make one by using a cake mix. It does not taste EXACTLY like a traditional pie crust but it is definitely eatable and doable.
Cake Mix Pie Crust
1 box cake mix (yellow or white)
1 T. butter, softened
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Separate 3 of your eggs and keep the egg yolks but you can toss the whites or save them to make a meringue. Place those 3 egg yolks into a bowl and add the 4th whole egg also.
Stir in the butter and cake mix.
Stir well until the ingredients form into dough.
Divide the dough in half. Dust your table or counter top with flour and roll out one of the halves.
Roll out the dough until it forms a circle that is a bit larger than your pie tin. Place into the pie tin and then pinch the edges to secure the dough to the pan. Bake in your oven for 25-27 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
If you are using the crust to make a pumpkin pie or a fruit filled pie, you do not need to prebake the crust. For those types of pies, just prepare the pie crust as directed and then fill and bake. Prebake the crusts for no bake fillings such as for a chocolate pie made from a pudding box.
