Super Easy Tender Pie Crust
It is important to only use vegetable shortening with this recipe and not butter or margarine. It is also important to use just enough water to make the dough stick together.
However, this is a very very easy crust to make. After 25 years of struggling to make a decent pie crust, I found this recipe and have yet to mess it up. I think I would have to deliberately do something to mess it up.
My kids never used to eat the crusts of my pot pies and other pies. Now they do.
By the way, please note that I am not the best at making my pie crusts look pretty, as evidenced by the picture.
