Apple Pie
Apple Pie

Pie Crust


2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cups Crisco Shortening
5 tablespoons cold water


SPOON flour into measuring cup and level.   Mix flour and salt in medium bowl.  Cut in Crisco using pastry blender until all flour is blended in to form peas-size chunks.   Sprinkle with water, one tablespoon at a time.   Toss lightly with fork until dough will form a ball.   Divide dough in half, if making double crust.  Press between hands form one or two  5 to 6 inch pancakes.

FLOUR dough lightly.  Roll into circle between sheets of waxed paper on damped countertop.  Peel off top sheet.   For single crust, trim one inch larger than inverted 9 inch pie plate.  Flip into pie plate.  Remove other sheet and press pastry to fit.   Fold edge under.   Flute.  For double crust,  flour each half of dough lightly.  Roll into circles between sheets of waxed paper on dampened countertop.   Peel off top sheet for bottom crust.  Transfer bottom crust to pie plate.  Remove other sheet and press pastry to fit.   Trim edge even with pie plate.   Add desired filling to unbaked pie crust. Remove top sheet from top crust.  Lift top crust onto filling pie.   Remove the other sheet.   Trim to 1/2- inch  round edge of pie plate.  Fold top edge under bottom crust.  Flute.  Cut slits in top crust to allow steam to escape.

BAKE according to specific recipe instructions.
For single baked pie shell,  heat oven to 425 degrees.   Thoroughly prick bottom and sides with fork (50 times)  to prevent shrinking.   Bake at 425 degrees for $10 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned.   For recipe calling for unbaked pie shell, follow baking directions given in that recipe.
