  • Ready In

  1. Measure flour into a very large bowl. Mix in shortening by breaking into smaller and smaller pieces using your hands or a pastry blender until lumps are no larger than peas. Gradually stir in the lemon-lime soda so that the mixture is evenly moistened.
  2. Form into baseball sized balls and pat flat. Store each flattened ball in a small resealable sandwich bag, then put those bags into a larger sized freezer bag. Freeze until needed.

Extremely easy. I cut this recipe down a lot in order to try it. I cut it to 5 servings and got about the amount needed for 5 crusts. I put four in the freezer and used one for a quiche. It ...

Wow, is this a lot of pie crusts... but very tasty and flaky, and they do freeze super well! The only thing I could complain about is finding a bowl/tub big enough to mix them in all at once, bu...

While this wouldn't impress the avid baker in my family, it is perfect for me! On a busy night it's ideal to thaw for a quick quiche or pot pie. Just make sure to make the "baseballs" big enough...

I am on my second batch now only because I have time to. I made a batch June 29th of this year and ran out ( not knowing my other half was using them for his pies.lol)right before Thanksgiving. ...
