Our Homemade Pie Crust recipe is great for any pie recipe you're looking to make. It's simple to prep and bake, and it's much tastier than baking with a store-bought version!
What You'll Need
- 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
- 6 tablespoons boiling water
- 2 teaspoons milk
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
What to Do
- In a large bowl, whisk shortening, water, and milk until it reaches the consistency of whipped cream. Add flour and salt; stir well with a spoon until dough forms a ball. Divide dough into 2 equal-sized balls.
- Place 1 dough ball between 2 sheets of wax paper; with a rolling pin, roll out to a circle slightly larger than a 9-inch pie plate. Place in bottom of a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate. Pour filling of your choice into shell.
- Roll out second dough ball to the same size and place over filling; seal by pinching edges together.
- Using a sharp paring knife, cut 6 small slits in center of the pie top to allow steam to escape while baking.
- Bake according to filling directions, or until crust is golden.
