Half Shortening and Half Butter Pie Dough — 6 Comments

  1. I used this recipe for my apple pies this Christmas. It’s going to be my new pie crust recipe! Loved it! I cubed the butter and popped it in the freezer to make it extra cold. Thank you for sharing it!

    • Hi Mary, If you are blind baking. Preheat oven to 375° and bake for 20 minutes or until the crust is golden. If you are filling the pie crust, follow the directions for the pie filling.

  2. I made this for both pumpkin pies and mincemeat tarts this year. Chilled the dough disks overnight. It is the easiest, most useful recipe ever. Many thanks. It is my crust-of-choice from now on.
