- 2 c
- all purpose flour
- 7/8 c
- crisco shortening, butter flavor or original
- 1 tsp
- 1 tsp
- 1/3 c
- cold water
1Mix/knead all ingredients together. Form ball. Roll out on floured surface. Place into a 9 inch deep dish pie plate, flute the edges and take a fork and poke holes all over the bottom. For a pre-cooked pie crust, bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Makes 1 crust.
2Notes: We once tried quadrupling this recipe and it didn't turn out as well. We usually double it with no problems. I would recommend making no more than a double batch at a time.
Also, we don't like a super flaky crust. I imagine if you want it a little flakier that you could mix the dry ingredients, cut in the shortening, and then add the water. Again, I'm not a baker, but, according to all the cooking shows, cutting in is the secret to flakiness in any pastry. I'll let you be the judge.
