Herman’s Pie Crust

3 c. flour

1 tsp. salt

1 c. shortening

1/2 c. cold water

Sift flour, measure, and sift with salt.

Cut in shortening until mixture is coarse and granular.

Work water in lightly with a spatula until little balls of dough just hang together in one large ball.  Divide into four pieces and roll out to 1/8 inch thick.


This was copied exactly as written.  If using a pie plate larger than 8”, you will probably only be able to get 3 pie crusts from this recipe.  You also might want to chill the balls of dough before trying to roll out.
