Pie crust12 Jun 2009 09:35 am

2 1/2 c flour

1/4 tsp salt

3 Tbsp sugar

1/4 c shortening, cold

12 Tbsp butter (1 1/2 sticks) cold and cubed

1/4 – 1/2 c ice water


In large mixing bowl, sift together flour, salt and sugar. Add shortening and break it up with hands as you coat it with the flour. Add the cold butter cubes and work it into the flour with a pastry cutter. Work it quickly so the butter doesn’t get too soft, until the mixture is crumbly, like very course cornmeal. Add the water a little at a time till mixture comes together into a ball. When it comes together stop working it or it will get tough. Divide dough in half and flatten slightly to form disk shape. Wrap each disk in plastic and chill in fridge for at least 2 hours. On a floured surface roll each disk out in to a 10-11 inch circle to make a 9 inch pie.
