Recipe Tools


1. Combine flour and salt in mixing bowl. Cut in solid shortening with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture is the size of small peas.

2. Use cold water only. Sprinkle water, a little at a time, on mixture while constantly tossing with a fork. Add water to driest parts while pushing lumps to sides, only until dough is just moist enough to hold together.

3. Form into a ball, then flatten to 1/2-inch thick on lightly floured surface. Roll with rolling pin to the size to fit your pie plate plus 1-1/2 inches. Roll from center outwards each time. Smooth edges with hands to keep it round.

4. Fit crust loosely into pan; flute edges and prick crust in several spots with a fork. Pat out any air bubbles.

5. Bake in a preheated 450-degree oven for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Cool completely before filling.
