Grandma Palma's Two Shell Pie Crust

This is the only pie crust recipe I ever use. One time I served a cherry pie at my house to my Grandparents. A few days later my Grandma called and asked for the crust recipe. "That was the best pie crust I've ever had" she said. "Ummm...Grandma, it's your recipe" I told her! -Sarah

2 cups flour
3/4 t. salt
2/3 cup shortening
4-6 T. ice cold water

  • Cut shortening into flour and salt. With a fork, toss the water into the dough, sprinkling it over the mixture.
  • Mix just till it sticks together. Then roll out. The more you play with it, the tougher it will be.
  • Also, I keep my shortening in the fridge, because I think it works better when it's cold.
