Easy Magic Pie Crust ohsweetbasil.com
My friend Kristin gave me this magic pie crust recipe & I’ll never make a traditional pie crust again!!  This is the easiest pie crust you will ever make–and it turns out perfect every time! I use this crust for sweet and savory pies.  I like to add Parmesan cheese and some herbs then use it with pot pies.  Or try adding cinnamon & cloves for an apple pie.  Be creative and enjoy!

A fool proof recipe that is great for both your favorite sweet and savory fillings.
  • 3 Cup flour
  • 1¼ Cup shortening, chilled
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • cold water
  1. Cut together the flour, salt and crisco until it looks like corn meal.
  2. Then, in a 1 cup measuring cup, combine 1 egg (slightly beaten), and 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar. Fill the cup up to ¾ full with ice water.
  3. Combine the wet and dry ingredients & stir with a fork until combined. Then use your hands to clump the dough together in a ball. Wrap in saran wrap and chill for 30 minutes. Divide in half & roll out. Once it is rolled out to the right size, I like to fold it in half and then in half the other way. Then you can pick it up & put it in the pie dish, and unfold it.
  4. Trim the edges to a uniform length, slightly larger than the pie dish. Pinch the dough between your fingers to form a zig-zag. Use a fork to poke holes throughout the bottom and sides of the crust. Bake according the directions for your particular pie.
