  • 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 stick chilled Crisco Baking Stick I used the butter flavor
  • 3-6 Tbs cold water


  • Blend flour + salt in a bowl. Cut up 1/2 of the Baking Stick into cubes and combine with the flour and salt until the dough is crumbly.
  • Stir in just enough water until the dough holds together. (I only needed the 3 Tbs.) You should be able to create a smooth ball that doesn't fall apart. Shape dough into a ball and chill for at least 30 min.
  • Roll out the dough on a floured surface. Using a bowl or round pattern with a sharp knife, cut out your dough. If you're making a regular pie, you want it to be 2 in. wider than your pie plate. If you are making mini pies, roll the dough out a little thinner than normal, cut out using a large cup, then place them in your muffin tins, not caring about where the creases end up. Poke the bottom of the pie dough with a fork.
  • Bake your crust(s) in the lower third of the oven, at °425 F, for 8-12 minutes, or until lightly golden. Pull the pie crust(s) out  and place on a cookie sheet to cool.
