As Thanksgiving quickly approaches, you’ve got the choice to buy a pre-made pie dough, already molded into that crappy aluminum pan, or you can be a hero and make your own dough from scratch. Air on the side of heroism, we say.

Our friends at ChefSteps agree. They’ve created a video where Grant Crilly walks you through how to make dough yourself at home. So go out and grab yourself a springform pan and get to work.

If you like this video, you should check out Playboy’s food and booze YouTube channel, Indulgence.
