This is the recipe I use for pie crust! It’s always perfect.

Serves: 8 Yield

Makes 2 pie crusts


2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted

1 teaspoon salt

2/3 cup butter or 2/3 cup shortening (we used Crisco)

5 -7 tablespoons cold water


Put flour into a mixing bowl with the shortening

Using a pastry cutter, cut the shortening into the flour.

add salt and water.

Mix until dough is formed.

Roll out on flat surface. ( I never roll it out, I just put the ball of dough in the pie pan and mash it and pat it to fit the pan)

Bake at 375 degrees until brown.
