Cream Cheese Pie Crust


This makes a very easy, very tasty pie crust.  It’s mixed in minutes.  Because of the addition of sugar, this is slightly sweetened.

1 1/2 cups just-add-water professional pie crust mix
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 8-ounce brick of cream cheese softened at room temperature
1/3 cup cold water

Use your stand-type mixer with a paddle attachment.  Mix the pie crust mix, sugar, and flour together.  Add the cream cheese and water.  Beat with the paddle, scraping down the sides if necessary, only until smooth.  Use as other pie crust dough.

Yield:  Enough pie crust for a double crust pie.
