Easy Pie Crust

When I ask my hubby what he'd like for dessert, he always says without fail...pie!  His favorite is strawberry rhubarb, which I will be sharing the recipe in the next couple of days.  Let's get started with pie crust...

Off we go!

Pie crust:
2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup shortening
5-7 tablespoons of ICE water.

Cut flour and salt into the shortening.  Add water.  Don't over work.  This will make 2 pie crusts (or a top crust), however, I use it for just 1 because we like thick crust pie!  YUMMY!


Wheat pie crust:
1 cup white flour
1 cup of whole wheat flour
2/3 c shortening
6-8 tablespoons of ICE water

Cut flours and salt into the shortening.  Add water.  Don't over work.  This will make 2 pie crusts (or a top crust), however, I use it for just 1 because we like thick crust pie!  The photo above is made using the wheat recipe.
