    Big Sis's Note:

    My family has used this recipe for years, it has even won First Prize at our local fair, many times. I hated to post this but I could not find another like it. I use Vanilla Cream Pie/Chocolate/Coconut/Banana Cream Pudding for the filling, every holiday :) Note: I just tried this crust with Chicken Pot Pie and ummmm just the best This will make 3 each 8" crust or 2 ea 9" crusts. When I take the time to make crust, I make extra, I roll it out between 2 sheets of wax paper and place in the large tupperware (about 2" high) flat bowl and place in freezer...then when I want to make a pie, I can do so in a hurry!

      Everyone, I would like you to meet an incredible Pie Crust that didn't leak or crimped edges that didn't melt flat in the oven. Pie Crust, meet everyone.

      This turns out very nicely. My first go at it I pressed the dough into the pie plates instead of rolling it out so that I didn't handle it very much. It's light and crispy. Definitely earned 5 stars for me since crusts have always eluded me. I will be using this recipe again soon for more pie crusts. 11/24/10 - update - Yes, this is the GO TO recipe for a crust. I mix the shortening in the flour. Blend the wet ingredients in a separate bowl - and then gently mix it in flour mix. Roll it and go! Perfect crust for pumpkin pies! It received rave reviews. I would give 10 stars!
