    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup shortening
    3-4 Tablespoons cold water

    For a 9 inch two crust pie:
    3 cups flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 cup shortening
    7-8 Tablespoons cold water

    Directions: Put flour and salt in bowl mix together. Add shortening and cut it in with your fingers or knife till it resembles small particles. Add cold water 1 Tablespoon at a time and mix well together till it forms a ball. Divide (if double) and roll on floured surface.[​IMG]

    Never trust a skinny cook is my motto! [​IMG]

    I am just getting my recipes together for this summer when my fruit trees start producing. I will be back begging apple recipes I hope.

    I'm a pie maker myself. I'm with Katy, the crisco recipe is what I use. If you a making fruit pies, get creative and add sugar, cinnamon,or whatever to the crust when making it.

    super easy breezy, lemon squeezy recipe:

    2 C. AP flour
    1/2 tsp. Salt
    1/3 C. Buttermilk
    2/3 C. Vegetable oil

    mix dry ingredients in bowl. add wet ingredients, mix until just blended evenly.

    divide. roll out between two pieces of wax paper.
    fit onto pie pan.

    that's all there is to it. my family loves this crust. it has lot's of flavor, good flaking and excellent on the 'ease' factor.

    check my signature line, it'll assure you that the recipe will be tasty! [​IMG]
