    Ingredients:

    Serves: 16

    Yield:

    pie crust

    Units: US | Metric

    Perfect Pie Crust

    Combine in bowl and add

    • 1 3/4 cups shortening (I prefer chilled butter) or 1 3/4 cups butter (I prefer chilled butter)

    In small bowl combine

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix flour, sugar and salt with fingers or fork till corse mill.
    2. 2
      Combine two mixtures with fingers or fork just until barely moistened. If you over combine you will make it tough and lose flakiness.
    3. 3
      If it looks under stirred and falls apart then you're there! Tightly wrap it in plastic wrap (it will continue to combine by itself while wrapped) and chill for half hour.
    4. 4
      Flour surfaces before rolling out.

      I used frozen butter and grated it in to the flour. The dough was easy to work with the first day and even easier after being chilled for 24hrs. I used theis to make vegetable turnovers, fruit and cream cheese pastries, and apple pie, and with the last bit of dough I made meat turnovers. They all turned out perfect. Thanks for the recipe.

      this is a great recipe which i have made for years. my recipe is exactly the same, but is divided into 5 portions. each portion is always enough for a pie crust. this dough may be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator for 3 days. this also freezes well.

      I've been using a pie crust recipe for 40 years and decided to find a new one. This one turned out excellent, just what I was looking for. I'll probably use it for the next 40 years.
