Grandma’s Easy Pie Crust

My mom raised me on homemade pie crust. I didn’t even know you could buy pre-made ones from the store until I left home two and a half years ago. While store crusts are time savers, the extra minutes needed to put together a homemade crust are worth it to me. Especially when a pie crust is so much easier than you think!

You will need:

  • 1 C shortening
  • 2 C flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup ice water

Mix together the shortening, flour, and salt. Then gently mix in the ice water. The less you deal with it, the better. Roll out onto a floured surface until about a quarter inch thick.

Makes two 9″ pie crusts.
