Old-Fashioned Pie Crust

  • Prep 10 min
  • Total 20 min

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. MORE + LESS -

    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.
