(for 9 inch pie)
1 1/3 cups sifted regular flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Crisco
3 tablespoons water

Code: Select all
Preheat oven to 425°. Sift flour before measuring; spoon lightly into
measuring cup and level without shaking or packing down. Combine flour and salt
in a mixing bowl. With a pastry blender or two knives, cut in Crisco until uniform;
mixture should be fairly coarse. Sprinkle with water, a tablespoon at a time; toss
with a fork. Work dough into a firm ball with your hands.
Press dough into a flat circle with smooth edges. On a lightly floured surface,
roll dough to a circle about 1 1/2 inches larger than inverted pie plate.
Gently ease dough into plate. Be careful not to stretch the dough. Trim 1/2
inch beyond edge of plate; fold under to make a double thickness of dough around
rim and flute with fingers or fork.
For a single crust, baked with filling, bake according to time and temperature
recommended for filing used. For single crust, baked without filling, prick bottom
and sides thoroughly with a fork. Bake at 425° for 10-15 minutes or until brown as
