Original recipe yields 1 - 9 inch pie crust

Directions

  1. Place flour in a bowl with the sugar and salt. Cut the butter and shortening into pieces, and cut into the flour until crumbly. Mix in vanilla. Add just enough water to form a ball: it should not be sticky. Knead quickly into a smooth ball. Wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for 1 hour.
  2. When ready to make pie, roll dough out as you would any crust. Do not let sit out, or handle excessively allowing to soften. Easiest to work with if firm.

I've been making pie crusts for many years now and this is the best ever. It was tender and flaky as a pie crust should be, without being completely tasteless like other recipes I've tried. I needed to use quite a bit more water than was called for, though, and I increased the amount of butter instead of using shortening. I'm deleting all my other pie crust recipes today.

I made some modifications to the recipe as I doubled it. Instead of white sugar I used brown sugar. I used margarine and eliminated the need to add salt. Everyone indicated that there was too much liquid. I used 5 tablespoons of water to 2 beaten eggs. My crust was delicious, flaky and now is going to be the one I use for my pies and tarts from now on. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

This is a really good pastry recipe, quick easy and tastes great, not too dry! A great use for it is with Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie (also on the site).
