My Mom’s Pie Crust

Yes, my Mom’s pie crust is the best.  This is probably the same recipe your Mom uses, too.  It always turns out.  Lately, I’ve had to add a bit more flour which I note in the recipe.

The Pie Crust of My Mother


  • 2 cups (original) - 2 1/4 cups (depending on the weather) flour
  • 3/4 cup crisco
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 4-6 T. cold water

Cooking Directions:

  1. Mix the salt and flour together.
  2. Cut in the crisco with a pastry blender until crumbly.
  3. Add water until it forms a workable ball.
  4. Divide dough in half and roll out top and bottom crusts.
  5. Makes enough crust for one large pie
