This is another pie crust recipe I use sometimes, I've used it for years.
If I know in advance I'm going to make pie crust,I put the flour& salt in the freezer for an hour before mixing the crust.
Sometimes when I make a savory pie,chicken,pork or turkey,I add 1 t. celery seed or 1/2 t. garlic powder
For sweet pie,sometimes I add 1 t. grated and minced lemon or orange peel.

How to Make Lad's Flaky Pie Crust


  1. Mix flour and salt together in a large bowl. Using a cheese grater,grate butter and margarine into flour,mix lightly to combine. The margarine will be a little soft and mix into the flour easily,the butter is firmer,pieces of butter is okay,makes the crust flakier. Mix in 3 T. water,then add 1 T. at a time,lightly mixing until the crust comes together. Form into 2 balls,flatten,wrap in plastic wrap,chill at least 15-20 minutes.
