Baked Pie Crust

Ingredients

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a large bowl, stir together flour and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening or lard until pieces are pea-size. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon cold water over part of the mixture; gently toss with a fork. Push moistened dough to side of bowl. Repeat, using 1 tablespoon cold water at a time, until all the dough is moistened. Form into a ball. On a lightly floured surface, flatten dough ball. Roll from center to edges into a 12-inch circle. To transfer pastry, wrap it around the rolling pin; unroll into a 9-inch pie plate. Ease pastry into pie plate, being careful not to stretch pastry. Trim pastry to 1/2 inch beyond edge of plate. Fold under extra pastry. Crimp edge as desired. Do not prick pastry. Line pastry with a double thickness of foil. Bake in a 450 degree F oven for 8 minutes. Remove foil. Bake 5 to 6 minutes more or until golden. Cool on a wire rack. Makes one 9-inch pie crust.
