Recipe: Classic Flaky Pie Crust

A holiday recipe for Classic Flaky Pie Crust

For 1 (9-inch) pie crust

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup shortening or lard

2 tablespoons cold butter

2 tablespoons ice water

1. In a large bowl combine flour and salt and mix evenly. Cut in shortening and butter until particles are pea-sized. Sprinkle in ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing gently with a fork until dough comes together in a ball. Do not over-handle dough. Press gently into a disk and refrigerate for about 20 minutes before rolling.

2. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out a bit bigger than the pie plate. Brush any excess flour off the dough and fit the dough into the pie plate.

3. Roll the dough over at the edges about 1/2 to 1 inch, trimming any excess, then crimp it with your fingers to make a pretty crust edge. Chill the crust until you are ready to fill and bake pie.
