Yummy, Yummy Pie Crust

If anyone hasn't heard ofShars Kitchen and her free cooking classes you really need to!

One of the many classes I have been to included her pie crust recipe. I just used it for the first time this past week to make my homemade Chicken Pot Pie and it is the absolute best pie crust I have ever tasted! Yummy, yummy pie crust!

It's quite simple too:

Combine 2 Cups of White Flour, 1 Cup Shortening, and 1/2 tsp. Salt until mixed well. After you have a crumbly mixture then add 1/2 Cup of Ice Cold Water and mix until blended completely.

The recipe is from Shar's grandmother and is meant to be hand mixed, so if using an electric mixer do not mix too long.

Once the dough is completely blended, put in a bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours. The dough will be a little sticky, but once refrigerated it will be ready for rolling!

The recipe above makes 2 pie crusts.
