Flour for pie crust

  • 2

What do you think would be the result if I used KIng Arthur Bread Flour instead of Gold Medal All Purpose in a pie crust?
Thanks.

  1. You'll end up with a tough crust, something closer to a shortbread or even a biscuit than a typical and desirable flaky and tender pie crust. Not a good thing.

    1. It would work better if you substituted a few tablespoons of cornstarch for equal amounts of bread flour, if you have to use bread flour.
