I found this recipe a while back when I became obsessed with baking pies. I was tired of using store bought crust because I didnt like the way it tasted. I did altar this recipe to my own liking and everybody becomes hooked on it! The buttery taste is so vivid in your mouth and it goes perfect with mostly any pie. So here is my new profound version.

Will have pictures up very soon!

How to Make Flakey buttery PIE CRUST


  1. Slice and cube butter and place back in the fridge to keep cold.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, and crisco. Use a pastry cutter to mix and cut the crisco with.
  3. Add the butter and continue using the pastry cutter until pea sized balls form.
  4. By 2tbsp. at a time, add the ice water. I use a spoon to stir in between each addition of water.
  5. Once all the water has been added, use your hands to kneed through the dough making one giant ball of dough (or 2 even balls of dough).
  6. You may need to add a little water to the outside of the dough where you see crack. The water helps smooth the cracks over.
  7. Lightly flour the dough and wrap in plastic wrap.
  8. Refrigerate atleast 30mins. before rolling out dough. Or up to 1 week.
  9. Once rolled out and inserted into pie plate, using a fork, poke various holes on the bottom.
  10. Bake 350 degrees for 10mins
