I love to bake homemade pies and probably bake at least one homemade pie every 7 to 10 days for my family. We love to eat pie for our desserts or as a snack. I guess you could say that we are PIE LOVERS!
A few years ago I got this easy homemade pie crust recipe from my mother and most of the time when I am making a homemade pie, I use this recipe. It makes 6 pie crusts so ONLY use this recipe if you are going to be baking a lot of pies!
Homemade Pie Crust Recipe
4 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
2 teaspoons salt
1 large egg
2 tablespoons white vinegar
In a large bowl, cream together the all-purpose flour, shortening and salt. Beat the large egg in a glass measuring cup using a wire egg beater. Add in the vinegar and enough water to make 1 full cup of liquid. Pour liquid mixture into the flour and shortening mixture. Blended until well combined.
You can now roll out your pie doughs onto a lightly floured surface. This recipe makes about 6 pie crusts so I store the dough in my refrigerator over a 2 day period of time until I get my pies all baked. You might have to play around with the flour amount until you get it just right.
