Let's Make It
Place flour in large bowl. Cut in cream cheese and butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Shape dough into ball; flatten into disk. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour.
Place dough between 2 lightly floured sheets of waxed paper; roll into 10-inch round. Discard top sheet of waxed paper. Spray 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray; invert over dough. Flip pie plate, holding pie plate and dough together. Discard second sheet of waxed paper. Gently press dough onto bottom and up side of pie plate. Flute edge of crust, if desired, then use as desired.
This easy-to-prepare recipe makes enough dough for a single-crust 9-inch pie. Or, it also makes the perfect pastry topping for your favorite pot pie recipe. If preparing a two-crust pie, double all ingredients and shape dough into 2 balls before rolling out.
When shaping the dough into a ball, handle it as little as possible to help prevent the baked crust from becoming tough.
