Storing Dry Pie Mixture
This type of question must have been asked a thousand times on a thousand different websites but I can't find the answer I'm looking. Hopefully I'll get some answers here!
Recently I bought a Kenwood Stand Mixer and because I make apple pie on a regular basis I'm thinking about making sufficent pie dough to give me two or three pies. So here is my question
If I only mix the flour and fat (Marg and Lard) how long will it keep in the fridge and how long will it keep in the freezer? I'l add the water when making the actual pie and work by hand.
By mixing in advance I'm hoping that I can cut down on the amount of electric used and the amount of cleaning up to do. (You really don't want to see my kitchen after a morning baking )
As always many thanks for your help
