Grandma Lee's Pie Crust
My Grandma Lee Fortenberry was an excellent baker. She learned through decades of experience and experiments. She had several fruit trees, including 2 apple and a Meyer Lemon, and she loved to bake with fruit from those trees.
This is as close to a recipe as I can write down. Grandma Lee didn't write down many recipes. I am transcribing this from a video I made of her baking. You can watch the video below and see if you can follow along.
- 1 c
- 1 mug of crisco shortening for 2 crusts
- 1/2 tsp
- approximate 1/4 tsp for each crust
- about a handful of gold medal flour
- 10 Tbsp
- about 5 regular tablespoons of cold water for each crust
