SELF-RISING FLOUR PIE CRUST

2 cups self-rising flour
2/3 cup solid shortening
6 to 8 tbsp water

Cut flour and shortening together until mixture is like coarse crumbs. Add the water, starting with 6 tablespoons, and mix until a stiff dough is formed. Gradually add more of the water, if needed. Divide the dough half. Roll half of the dough to a circle about 1/8-inch thick. Transfer to a pie plate. Add the filling. Roll remaining dough like the first half and use over the top of the filling. Using your fingers, turn the edges of the dough under to seal and press into a scalloped designed edge. Cut small slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape during baking. Bake according to the pie recipe.

  1. This is one of the BEST pie crust recipes I have ever come across. It turned out just like the crusts my grandmother would make from scratch. I give this two-thumbs UP!
