Our Pie Auction to raise money for flood victims in Pakistan is just one week away. And many of our staff have said they have never made a pie before. So I thought I would post a simple pie crust recipe. Happy pie making all
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup shortening
1/2 cup water
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.
Roll out dough on a floured counter. Don’t over work it. Use as directed in pie recipe.
