Pie Crust I

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
This is the first crust that worked for me, with a bit of experimentation. I make the following changes. 1, Use 3 cups of flour, 1 of shortening, 1.5 spoons of salt for 2 9" pie crusts. 2. Mix the flour, shortening and salt in a food processor, then turn the mixture out into a bowl before adding water. 3. Start mixing the water in with a fork, then mix the last water in using hands. 4. Roll out with a rolling pin. Use this for apple pie. Bake for 375 degrees for 40 mins, then 15 mins at 400 degrees, brushing the top crust with beaten egg before baking.
