Instructions



Store bought piecrust will work just fine, but if you want to try making a homemade one, follow these instructions

1. Combine flour and vegetable shortening in a large bowl. Blend the mixture together with a pastry cutter until it looks like crumbs.


2. Beat two eggs with a fork and add them to the flour mixture. Mix until combined.


3. Add in 10 tablespoons of very cold water and 2 teaspoons salt. Work the mixture until it becomes doughy. You may need to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty here!


4. Roll out your crust into a thick disc. Then, cover and chill until you’re ready to bake with it. You can also freeze it for a later date.
