Best Ever Pie Dough
Pies & Pastries
egg (mixed with enough
water to make 3/4 cup)
I can guarantee that the bottom crust will be as flaky as the top
crust. It's a BIG hit around here! Try it, it's SUPER flaky... Mix
together the flour and salt; cut in the shortening until it resembles
tiny peas. Add enough water to the egg to make 3/4 cup of liquid (I
used COLD water). Add to the flour mixture and blend until dough holds
together. The recipe didn't say to chill the dough but I did anyway..
habit. Not only is this crust SUPER FLAKY but it's VERY easy to work
with. I've never achieved a finer crust. Try it, TRUST ME, it's
wonderful! This recipe is suppose to make 3 double pie crusts, I'm not
sure. I got one double pie crust & made 12 small apricot tarts with
the rest of it.
