NO Fail Pie Crust... water whip pie crust

Tonya Dupree


This recipe was given to me from my boyfriend's mother, Bonnie. I had never made a home made pie crust before, till I got this recipe. It's so easy and hasn't failed me yet ! I have been a pie making fool since getting this ! My boyfriend, Lance has been my taste tester and doesn't seem to mind.

How to Make NO Fail Pie Crust... water whip pie crust


  • 1Stir milk, salt, sugar and vanilla into the shortening.
  • 2Add boiling water and whip with a fork until like a thick cream.
  • 3Add flour all at once. Stir with a fork in "around the bowl motion ". Stir till just mixed. Do not over mix.
  • 4If making single prebaked pies to fill later, prick with a fork and bake 12 min. @ 450. If making a pie , like a pumpkin pie, just bake according to pumpkin pie recipe directions. It is very important when mixing the crust, do it in the round the bowl motion, if you don't, you'll have a big mess on your hands... lol
