Method

  • STEP 1
    In a lg bowl sift together the flour salt and sugar. Add the crisco and break it up with your hands as you start to coat it all up with flour. Add the cold butter cube's and work into the flour with your hands or pastry cutter. (Work it quickly so the butter doesn't get soft) until the mixture is crumbly, like coarse corn meal. Add the ice water.( A little at a time) until mixture comes together forming a dough. Bring dough together and stop working it otherwise the dough will get overworked and tough. Divide dough in half and flatten it slightly to form a disk shape. Wrap disks into plastic and chill for 30 min. On a floured surface roll each disk out into a 10-11 inch circle to make a 9 inch pie. Bake crust at 350° for 8 min. Take out and add the filling return to oven and bake at 350° until done.
