Pie Crust

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Butter
  • 3 tablespoons Shortening
  • 5 to 6 tablespoons Shortening


  • Combine flour, salt, and sugar in a bowl.
  • Cut in butter and shortening with a pastry blender (use your hands or two knives if you don t have one) until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add cold water, a tablespoon at a time, until mixture comes together. Form into a ball. Do not overwork dough.
  • Cover ball of dough in plastic wrap and chill for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Remove plastic wrap. On a floured surface and using a floured rolling pin, roll out dough into a circle large enough to cover pie plate. If any holes or tears result, pinch off a piece of dough from edge of crust and patch hole.
  • Transfer pie dough from work surface to pie plate. To transfer, place the rolling pin on top of the dough and roll the dough onto the pin.
  • Gently place rolling pin on top of pie plate and unroll dough. Still working with a light hand, pat crust to mold it to the shape of the plate.
  • Lift pie plate with one hand. Using your other hand, remove overhanging edges with a knife, working all the way around. Reserve excess dough for decorating top of pie crust or for making smaller pies.
  • Decorate edges by using your fingers to create curved edges. You can also use a fork to simply crimp edges. Fill with your choice of filling, bake, and enjoy.
