The Best Ever Pie Crust!

I don’t know about you, but homemade pie crusts can be tricky to get just right!  When I need something quick, I am not above grabbing a prepared crust, but I always break out a homemade crust when I can. This recipe is so forgiving and easy-to-use, and it is super flaky and delicious.  Also, I love that this recipe makes two crusts that freeze well, and there are just a few ingredients! I use it for pies and quiches…You should bake a pie and bring me a slice!! Enjoy!



2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup shortening
1/2 cup water
1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water until mixture forms a ball. Divide dough in half, and shape into balls. Wrap in plastic, and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
2. Roll out dough on a floured counter.  (I always roll out my dough on a layer of parchment paper too, as I find it easier to work with) Don’t over work it. After it is rolled out, press into pie pan and use as directed in pie recipe.
