Pie Crust I

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
Very basic pie crust that anyone can make, even if for the first time. However, I have a real problem with pie crust recipes when they use ONLY shortening. You HAVE to use a little bit of butter for a good tasting pie. Now I'm not saying don't use shortening at all, shortening is good at making the crust flaky, but if you just use shortening, it's going to have a funny chemical taste to it. Some reviews here mentioned this crust was too salty, but that's actually the shortening they're tasting. If you're butter conscious, then at least use butter flavored shortening. Real unsalted butter is a LOT better, of course. One other tip might be to add vinegar or lemon juice to the water that you use. Do this especially if you don't use shortening at all so that you can still get that flaky texture.

EXCELLENT recipe! Everyone I've ever made this for LOVES it. Only thing I change is not adding the mushrooms since I'm no fan of them :P.
