Why I Love This Recipe

My mom's been using this pie recipe for years. She doesn't really *use* measurements, but I find that these measurements work for me. If it's too soft, add more flour. If it's too dry, add more shortening.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup butter flavored vegetable shortening
2 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
5 tbsps. cold water


Beat vegetable shortening, flour, and salt together in a large bowl

Slowly add cold water into the mixture while beating

Gather the dough and roll into two equal sized balls

Roll each piece out on wax paper with a rolling pin

Use with your favorite pie filling recipe!

Pairs Well With

Pie filling!
