This recipe makes two crusts. It's my grandma's recipe from the farm, but back in the day, she used lard. I use Butter-Flavored Crisco™ instead.

Ingredients

3/4
cup butter-flavored shortening
2
cups flour
1/2
teaspoon salt (more, if desired)
6
tablespoons cold water

Directions

  • 1 In a large bowl, add shortening, salt and flour. Using a pastry cutter, cut the dry ingredients into the shortening until the dough forms small pea-sized bits.
  • 2 Add water a tbsp at a time, cutting (with pastry cutter) after each addition. Using hands, blend dough until it holds together. Form two balls.
  • 3 Flour counter top or pastry board and rolling pin well. With first dough ball, form a large hockey puck shape. Turn over and roll out with rolling pin, rolling from center to edges to form a circle.
  • 4 Carefully place crust in pie pan. Repeat with second crust (or reserve for top crust of a two-crust pie.)
