Pie Crust – Evie Davis

Evie Davis

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 t. salt
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2/3 cup room temperature shortening

Mix flour and salt together in bowl.  Measure 1/3 cupful of this mixture and place it in a small bowl or cup.  Stir into it the ¼ cup of water to form a smooth paste.  Cut into the flour mixture in the first bowl the 2/3 cup shortening until the grain is the size of small peas.  Stir the flour paste into the dough.  Work it with your hands until I is well incorporated and the dough may be gathered into a ball.  Cover the dough and chill until firm.  Makes 2 crusts.

For pre-baked crust, roll and place in pie tin, prick the bottom with a fork making small vents, bake in 425 oven for 12 – 15 minutes.
