The Very Best Homemade Pie Crusts

Mom's Recipe...

4 Cups sifted flour

1 1/2 Teaspoon salt

1 1/3 Cup Crisco plus 1 Tablespoon

8 Tablespoons ice water


Sift flour before measuring.  Spoon lightly into measuring cup and level without shaking or packing down.  Add salt.  With pastry blender cut flour and Crisco until uniform.  Sprinkle with water a little at a time.  Work dough into a firm ball with your hands.  Roll out into a round circle slightly larger than your pie pan.  It works best to roll it between two sheets of wax paper. For single crust baked with filling, bake according to filling used.  For crust baked without filling prick bottom and sides with fork.  Bake at 425 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes or until brown as desired.



My Recipe...

( I really like pie crust, and make extra for my pies!) 

3 Cups flour

1 1/2 Teaspoon salt

1 Cup plus 2 Tablespoons Crisco

6 Tablespoons water (Iced)


Combine flour and salt in bowl. Cut in Crisco until mixture is uniform and very fine.  Sprinkle water over this mixture little at a time and mix with fork.  Work into firm ball.  Divide dough and roll between two pieces of wax paper.  For one shell bake at 425 degrees 12 to 15 minutes.

Mom's Apple Pie

This is the old fashioned apple pie, with a fabulous crust!  The apples are just the right tartness, and again, the crust is why I eat the pie... It is outstanding!!!
