    tasb's Note:

    This is from a Five Roses Flour Cookbook. I have no idea when it was printed; all I could find is '24th edition'. It is probably older than me .. over 31 years old; my Father had this cookbook and it was all torn up when I was a kid, but I found one a few years ago at Value Village. And of course the original name isn't Totally Awesome, it is called Standard Pastry.

    double ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Mix Five Roses Flour, salt and baking powder together.
    2. 2
      Cut in shortening with two knives or pastry blender.
    3. 3
      Add ice cold water, a little at a time, using just enough to bind the mixture so the dough can be patted lightly to form a ball. HANDLE AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE.
    4. 4
      Form 2/3 of dough into a round disc and place on lightly floured board. Save remaining dough for top crust. Roll dough from center outward, with a light, even pressure, to form a circle 1/8 inch thick and an inch larger than the pie plate.
    5. 5
      Fold double and lift gently into pie plate. Unfold and fit loosely in place. DO NOT STRETCH.
    6. 6
      Trim edges, allowing 1/4 to 1/2 inch extra all around. Put in a generous amount of filling. Heap fruit filling in center because it will cook down during baking.
    7. 7
      Roll out top crust; fold double and cut slits or fancy design near center to allow steam to escape.
    8. 8
      Brush edges of bottom crust with water, fit top crust over filling and lightly press top edges together. Trim edges evenly and flute.
    9. 9
      Bake as directed for pie filling.
    10. 10
      Yield: One 9 inch double crust pie or two 9 inch single shells.
    11. 11
      Single Shell:.
    12. 12
      Use only 1/2 of dough for each single shell. Arrange bottom crust in pie pan as above.
    13. 13
      Press pastry to rim of pie plate; flute.
    14. 14
      Add filling. Bake as directed for filling.

      Easy to put together & roll out--used this to make my Spicy Bean Turnover recipe and it worked well. After baking, I froze the recipe and it reheated well in the microwave.

      Totally Awesome is right!! I have never made a pie crust from scratch before and this one came out really well. I had a little trouble rolling it out, but I chalked that up to inexperience. It tasted great, and was nice and flaky...definitely better than store bought (duh)! I'll definitely be making this again now that I know how easy it is. Mmmmmm...fruit pies...pot pies...quiches...
