Quick and Easy
This was a quick and easy pie crust to make. I don't have a food processor, but easily made it without one. Used it with a Black Bottomed Strawberry pie recipe for a teenager's "pie party"! Turned out awesome!

Home Made is better.
I like this recipe. My mother in law and I make a lot of cakes, and pies over the holidays more specially. We could buy the ready made pie crust, but the home made is so much better. We even make this pie crust ahead of time and freeze it until we are ready to make the pies. And even after they have been frozen. The pies are so much better. And the crust stays light and fluffy.

Classic Crisco Pie Crust
Crisco is the only shortening my mother ever used for making pie crusts. I am 71 years old and it is the only shortening that I have ever used for making pie crusts. Now my daughter uses Crisco. My granddaughter lives in Germany and says her baking is not the same without Crisco. This recipe is excellent . I tripled it to make three pumpkin pies (my mother always did this).

I have an older version of the Crisco pie crust recipe that has a slight variation.
You withhold 1/3 cup of the flour and salt mixture and add the cold water to that to form a paste. You then incorporate the paste into the remaining flour to make the dough. It's a much easier way of thoroughly mixing the water in.

I have never found a better pie crust that one made with Crisco Shortening. My mom taught me how to make it many years ago (50) when she was the baker in the school lunch program at my school when they still served "real" food made from scratch everyday.

I love this recipe
This crust is easy to make and tastes great. I have made it for years and it has always turned out tender and flaky. I always chilled the flour too.

I am 72 (on March 17) and have made a few pie crusts in my life. I never have a crust turn out the same each time, so I have been making the crusts that are pre-made by pros and in the refrigerator in the markets. I tried this one and loved the way it comes out. The appearance is good ( for my 1st try) and it was easy to prepare. I would definitely recommend this recipe to my family and friends, because if mine came out this good, theirs' should be a cinch!!
