These are KEY in making a good pie crust. Crisco is a staple
in our house;)
Once you have added your water, and your dough should be
rather dry, this is what you should have.
Add flour to your surface, and using your rolling pin roll
out your doug
h to about 1/8 inch thick. You can adjust
the thickness based on how you like your pie crust-I like
mine a little thicker.
Lay your pie crust in your greased pie pan. It should hang
over the sides. If not, roll it out some more.
Using your hands, press the crust into the pie pan to ensure
that there isn't any air underneath. Your crust will bubble up if
there are any air pockets.
Using a SHARP knife, go around the edge of the pie pan
and cut off the excess crust. Use the rim of the pan to guide
your knife. If you have a dull knife it will just pull the
crust and it will make an uneven cut.
The finished product:)
Hopefully you see that this really is a simple task and saves you a couple dollars! Yes, sometimes saving the time is worth it, but if you have it try making your own:) Hope you have a Wonderful Wednesday! I am going to eat some of that Chocolate Pie I made yesterday;) I will share that recipe soon!!!!
Easy Pie Crust
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Ingredients (2 Pie Crusts)
- 2 cups Self-Rising Flour
- 1/2 cup Crisco
- 3/4 cup Water
In a bowl, add your flour. Using a fork, work in your crisco until it is in pieces the size of a pencil eraser. Add your water and lightly mix with a fork. Once the water is incorporated, use your hands and knead into a ball. Work the crust with your hands until smooth. Use your rolling pin and roll out your crust to about 1/8 inch. Lay crust into pie pan and seal the edges with your hands. With a sharp knife, go around the edge of the pie pan and cut off excess dough. Punch holes in the bottom of your crust with your fork to ensure the crust doesn't fluff up while baking. Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes.
