A tender and easy no fail crust to make for any dessert that needs a crust!

I have been making this crust since 1980!  Oh my gosh!  PLEASE do not do the math!  This super tender crust is perfect for a cobbler, hand pies, tarts, galettes just about any dessert that has a crust.  This crust is made the way my grandma used to make it.  Using shortening and no butter.  I remember the first time I made a pie for my grandma.  She made sure to coach me on how to mix the dough together.  “Don’t over mix it”  she said….”or you’ll end up with a tough dough”.

  1. Have you this with butter flavored crisco? Or half regular half flavored? I’ve never used it but always wondered if ot actually tastes weird or like butter…

    • Hi Bryan, I’ve never used butter flavored crisco. I would recommend using half crisco and half real unsalted butter.
