Recipe by JackieOhNo

This is a terrific all-purpose pie crust that you can use during the holiday season (or all year long) for your single-crust pie. This can be prepapred 2 days ahead of use; simply cover and refrigerate.

Jackie, all I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you. I will never do pie crusts any other way. Simple and efficient and now that is my motto since trying your recipe.

Directions

  1. Mix flour, sugar and salt in food processor. Add butter and shortening. Using on/off pulses, process until mixture resembles coarse meal. Drizzle 3 T. ice water over mixture. Process just until moist clumps form, adding more ice water by teaspoonfuls if dough is dry. Gather dough into a ball; flatten into a disk. Wrap in plastic; chill until dough is firm enough to roll out, about 30 minutes.
  2. Roll out dough on lightly floured work surface to 12-inch round. Transfer dough to 9-inch-diameter glass pie dish. Fold overhang under. Crimp edges decoratively.
