1 cup flour
1/2 cup shortening, butter flavored
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons water, ice cold
In a bowl put 1 cup flour and 1/2 tsp. salt and mix with a fork. Add 1/2 cup shortening and cut in with either a fork or pastry blender. When shortening is pea size and coated wit the flour mixture add 3 Tbsp cold water and gently mix just to incorporated.

Put 1 cup flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a bowl and mix together with a fork.
Add 1/2 cup butter flavored shortening.
Cut shortening in- you can use a pastry cutter or a fork.
Once shortening is pea size and coated in flour mixture you will add 3 Tablespoons ice cold water. I put ice in a bowl and cover with water then I measure my 3 Tablespoons from that bowl.
Grab a spoon and form dough into a ball.
*careful to not over mix!
This little gem is my silicon mat and it takes all the intimidation if homemade crust away! If you don't have one buy one! Mine is pampered chef but i'm sure any brand is great!
Sprinkle flour on the rolling mat and place dough in the center circle. Begin rolling dough outwards and work it around the entire ball to form a circle. I roll mine to the 12 inch circle. sprinkle the crust with a little flour and lift the mat folding the dough in half. Next fold the dough in half again .
Now that the dough is folded into quarters place it in the pie dish and gently unfold it.
Once unfolded trim the pie crust evenly around the perimeter, i typically do half an inch.
Finish the edge and poke with a fork to prevent air bubbles.
Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes or until slightly golden! Let cool and
fill with your favorite filling! Check out the recipe to one of our favorite fillings here!
