Pie Crust

1 cup Flour
1/2 cup plus 1 Tablespoon Shortening
1/4 cup Water
1/2 teaspoon Salt

Make sure all ingredients are at room temp. Follow the measurements and directions EXACTLY.

Measure the flour and shortening separately. Cut the shortening into 1/2 of the flour with a pastry blender (25 strokes). Cut in the remaining flour (15 strokes). Add water and salt; mix with a fork (50 strokes). Flour hands and gather dough into a ball. Roll dough out between 2 pieces of wax paper and ease dough into pan (remove wax paper carefully). Trim the excess dough with a knife. Bake at 350-degrees until lightly browned.

  1. Just rolled out on a cookie sheet with butter and cinnamon sugar is probably my favorite way to eat this stuff...I guess it is alright for pie too.
