Why I Love This Recipe

I have tried many recipes for pie crust and this is the one that works best for me. It makes a nice flaky crust.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of salt
¾ cup butter flavored Crisco
5 tablespoons ice water


Cut the Crisco into the flour and salt with a pastry blender. Using a fork to mix, add the water and stir until blended. This will make a crust for a double 10 inch pie.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

I always find this one the best also and I have tried many. I love good flaky pie crust. I do sometimes make the one with egg, vinegar etc but I like this one better.

Hi Joy! I too, always make my pie crust the exact same way and it turns out wonderfully. I guess great minds (with great names) think alike. :-) - Joy

I totally agree Joy, I use this recipe all the time. It never fails.
