Pie is the greatest reward after enduring the savory side of Thanksgiving. And while you'll find pie crusts that use any assortment of shortening and lard, we say butter is Thanksgiving pie's best friend. Nothing beats it on flavor or flaky texture, so take this Thanksgiving pie recipe dough to heart. It's a mere four ingredients, and all it takes is a food processor, flour, frozen butter, and a slow, steady stream of ice-cold water to make the queen of all doughs. Now you're ready to put it to use in any of our Thanksgiving pie recipes.
