Easy Pie Crust Recipe

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.


If necessary, use a little less water than called for in recipe.
