My pie crust is too crumbly

Judy asks: My pie crust is too crumbly to form into a ball of dough. What should I do?

BakingSOS says: Your pie crust is too dry. It may also be too warm. The fat (usually vegetable shortening) needs to be cold. Take some ice water and sprinkle in a few drops of water at a time until your dough is moist enough to form into a ball. After forming the dough, it is also a good idea to chill it in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes before you roll it out. (To do so, flatten the dough into a disk and wrap it in plastic wrap.) Chilling the dough gives it time to “rest,” which will, in turn, make it easier to roll out.
