Original recipe makes 12 double crust pies Change Servings


  1. Place flour in a very large mixing bowl. Add shortening and cut it into flour with a pastry blender until the crumbs are the size of peas.
  2. Dissolve salt in the water and add the water to the flour mixture a small amount at a time mixing it just until the water is absorbed and the dough holds together.
  3. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for four hours. Use 14 oz of dough for a two crust 9 inch pie or 11oz of dough for an 8inch pie.

It was very good but not as flaky as I though it would be.

Beautiful and flaky. Hubby loves it!!! But I do have a question, can you freeze this dough. I would love to make this and divide it into individual crusts because I make usually a pie or two a week

Happy to find this again, used it years ago and had since lost it. I'd make it plain for my dessert pies, but I look forward to trying it flavored w/ Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb for another layer of flavor for my pot pies.

This worked pretty well for my chicken pot pie. It was the first time in my 50 years that I made pie dough from scratch!
