Sweet Yeast Crust
Serving Size: 1

1 tablespoon active dry yeast -- 1 pk.
1/4 cup water; warm -- 110-115 deg. f.
2 cup unbleached flour -- sifted
1/4 cup sugar -- granulated
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter
1 egg; large -- lightly beaten

Cooking Directions:

Lightly grease the baking pan. Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. In a
large mixing bowl, mix the flour, sugar and salt until well blended. In a
saucepan, heat the milk and butter, then cool to lukewarm. Add the warm
milk and the yeast mixture to the dry ingredients, then add the egg. Blend
well to form a moist soft dough. Knead lightly until the dough is soft and
smooth. Return the dough to a clean greased bowl and cover with a damp
towel. Set the dough in a warm place to rise. Let rise for 1 hour or
until doubled in size. When the dough is ready, punch it down and pat it
into a thin layer. Place the layer into the bottom of the pan folding the
excess dough up the sides of the pan making it as smooth as possible.
Allow the dough to rise again, in the pan until it is doubled, bout 30 to
45 minutes. When the dough is double the crust is ready to be filled.
