Easy and Delicious Pie Crust

on October 2, 2013

Hello Everyone!

Thanksgiving is soon approaching so today I have an easy pie crust recipe! This recipe comes from my Grandmother and it is so versatile. We make pies, fruit pies, quiches, casseroles– anything that calls for a pie crust! But we have been craving pumpkin pie and at first I was worried that if we had it now we wouldn’t want it on Thanksgiving but really, who would get tired of pie?

What I love about this crust is that it has 5 ingredients and it requires NO rolling out!!!! Or chilling…. It’s so annoying when you want a pie and you want it now but the crust is holding you back because it has to chill for 2 hours…. the frustrations of a baker….. 😉 And when you make a homemade crust you always feel good about your pies!

*If a recipe calls for a baked pie crust then go ahead and bake it but if it calls for unbaked then it works just fine for that too. 🙂

Isn’t that a cute dollop of Whipped cream? Its so pretty….Here’s what my pie would really look like though if I was just eating it…. Equal parts crust, filling, and whipped cream…..
