Cathy Ross


This recipe never fails and it's really good for fruit pies. I have had this for many years, and it has been my favorite pie crust since I've had it.

Crust for one pie


10 Min


1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup shortening
3 - 4 tablespoons ice water
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine flour and salt. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender. ( I just use a fork.) Add ice water to moisten flour.
Form into a ball. Chill for about an hour. Roll out and fit into a 9-inch pie pan.
Soften butter and spread over bottom of pastry. Sprinkle sugar and flour over butter. Bake at 400 degrees until pastry is brown.
