Best Pie Crust


    A pie crust recipe that works perfectly for sweet and savory pies. Made by hand and so easy!

    2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
    1 teaspoon salt
    2/3 cup butter or 2/3 cup shortening (we used Crisco)
    5 -7 tablespoons cold water

    Put flour into a mixing bowl with the shortening
    Using a pastry cutter, cut the shortening into the flour.
    add salt and water.
    Mix until dough is formed.
    Roll out on flat surface. ( I never roll it out, I just put the ball of dough in the pie pan and mash it and pat it to fit the pan)
    Bake at 375 degrees until brown.
