With the holiday season drawing near let me give you a tutorial on how to make a quick and easy pie crust using crisco butter flavor shortening.
In a large bowl mix flour and salt together.
With a pastry blender cut the Crisco into the flour until pieces are the size of a pea.
Sprinkle the cold water over the mixture and gently toss using a fork. Repeat this until all the water is added or all the dough is moistened.
Form dough into a ball, wrap with saran wrap. Place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Remove dough fro saran wrap onto a floured surface, sprinkle a little flour onto the pastry.
Gently roll the pastry out to the desired thickness, use the rolling pin to roll the dough up.
Unroll the pastry on to a 9-inch pie plate. Gently push the dough down into the pie plate. Starting in the center working to the sides.
Trim the dough to 1/2 inch beyond the edge of the pie plate. Fold the extra dough and crimp the edges however you wish.
Bake in a 450℉ oven for 13-14 minutes or until golden. May wish to cover with foil halfway through baking time as to not burn the crust.
