Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
I teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
6 tablespoons butter
6 tablespoons shortening
6 to 8 tablespoons ice water
hint: If this is your first time making this pie crust, make a double batch to be sure you have enough crust.




Pie Crust Mix


First Step: Mixing the Pie Crust


Warm the butter in the microwave until it is soft, but not melted.


Mix in a large bowl:


2 cups all-purpose flour


I teaspoon salt


1 tablespoon sugar


Then cut in using the dough blender:


6 tablespoons butter


6 tablespoons shortening


6 to 8 tablespoons ice water


Place in fridge for at least 20 min.


Now that you have made the pie dough, let's put this pie together! Make sure your pie crust has been at least 20 minutes in the refrigerator before assembling the pie.



Pie Crust First Step:


Now that your pie crust has had plenty of time to cool, divide it into two, equal halves.



Rolling Pie Crust


Roll one of the balls of pie crust out until it is around 1/8th of an inch thick.



Putting Crust in Pie Pan


Once you have rolled out the dough, wrap it around the rolling pin and unroll it onto your pie pan.


Once you have shaped it to fit the inside of the pan, take a fork and poke holes in the bottom of the crust. This will let the steam out as the pie bakes.



Filling pie


Dump all of the filling in the pie. Place about 4 chunks of butter on top of filling. This will give it a rich flavor.



Cover Filling With Crust


Ok, we're almost done!


Roll out the remaining pie dough and place it on top.



Edge of Crust


Create a pattern around the edge of the pie by using the back of a knife.




Let's bake Our Pie!


hint: Poking holes in the top of a pie usually keeps it from overflowing.

Notes

I never made pie crust from scratch before.
