Pie Pastry

November 16, 2017

2 1/4 c. sifted floor

1 t. salt

1/4 c. water

3/4 c. Crisco


Sift flour and salt together.

Take 1/3 cup of flour out and mix with the water into a paste.   

Cut the Crisco into the flour with a pastry blender or two knives until the pieces are the size of small peas.   

Add the flour paste to the flour-Crisco mixture.  

Mix until the dough can be shaped into a ball.  

Divide into two parts.   

Roll each crust about 1/8-inch thick and place in a 9-inch glass or metal pie pan.

Preheat oven to 425.

Bake 10 - 12 minutes if filling the pie later, or follow the instructions for a pie with filling.
