This is my Moms pie crust recipe that was handed down to her from her mother and she got it from hers! I have used it for the past 36 years and it is my favorite!
Grandmas Pie Crust
3 cups flour
1 cup Crisco
scant tsp. salt
2/3 cup ice water
I use my Kitchen-aid mixer with the flat paddle (but any mixer will do). Mix shortening and salt into flour until it crumbles into the size of a pea, then add the ice water. Let mix until dough clings to beater and pulls away from sides of mixer bowl. Flour a surface and roll out your pie crust. Place into pie pan and fill with desired filling and place rolled dough over top. Go around the edge with a table knife and trim excess off. Crimp edges.
If making a crust that needs to be baked before filling, bake at 400 degrees for the first 5 minutes and then 10 minutes at 350 degrees
This will make 5 pie shells or 2 covered pies and 1 shell.
