Flaky Pie Crust

The ingredients sound odd, but this does make a great flaky pastry crust for pies.

ingredients

directions

  • Mix flour, sugar and salt with fingers or fork till corse mill.
  • Combine two mixtures with fingers or fork just until barely moistened. If you over combine you will make it tough and lose flakiness.
  • 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.
  • Flour surfaces before rolling out.

    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.

    The comments about it being dry and crumbly when you work with it are true, but it made a delicious flaky crust. I used shortening becasue I was out of butter. I think with butter it would have been divine.

    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 the best pie crust that I have ever tasted!! I really appreciate a good recipe like this one. I gave a friend of mine a piece of my apple pie and she said that she thought that her mother made the best crust, but this one tops it by far. My family and I love it and will use it always. Thanks Rosalie from Pa.
