A great and simple pie crust recipe
- Cut shortening into flour and salt until dough appears crumbly.
- Add water a little at a time, until it can be gathered into a ball.
- Roll out dough on a floured counter.
- Don't overwork it.
- Use as directed in pie recipe.
- It will be very flaky.
Excellent recipe! I made this as a topping to a chicken pot pie #10744 recipe. It was perfect and flaky. Can't wait to make an apple pie with it! Thanks
excellent recipe. This was my very first dough/pie making experience and it went well. I substituted and used fresh squeezed lemon juice.
Tastes good & needed at least a 3 hour chill time because of the tearing. I did not have enough crust to make edges because if I rolled it any thinner it tore more even after chilling it.
