    This is absolutely the best pie crust I have ever used. It never fails me and always comes out flaky and perfect. This recipe is enough for 2 - 9" crusts.

      Great recipe! I am terrible with a rolling pin but this recipe patches well without adding more water. Also, it comes out of a pie pan clean as a whistle. Those of you having to add water, remember that the flour that you throw on the counter to roll the dough in comes out of the total flour needed, and not in addition to. Leave the last 1/4 cup of flour out of the mixer to roll the dough in.

      I have been using this reciepe for years, got it from a business car chef on the railroad. I use butter instead which probably takes away a little of the flakyness but adds to flavour. Also add just a touch of sugar for dessert pies. I mix it in a food processor, cuts the mixing time to about two min.

      This is the same recipe my grandmother taught me many years ago, also you may make up the flour, shortening, and salt, double or tripple for holidays and have it in the fridge in a coffee can with a lid. Poof. Pies can be made in minutes.
