Doesn't this look Yummy!
A good pie will have a crust that is tender and flaky and tastes good.  To make the most flaky pie crust you would use lard.  Trust me, in college we did experiments with the fat part of pie crust being the only variable, and the flakiest was the crust made with lard.  I don’t use lard, so I use hydrogenated shortening.  It came in second with the test.  Butter didn’t even place.  So I use butter flavor hydrogenated shortening.  Yeah, that works:

Here is how to make flaky, tender, tasty pie crust.

Step 1:

Supplies:  (These are the amount for 1 8inch pie crust.  I made 4 X as much, you will need to double it.  One is for the bottom, one for the top.)
1 c flour
1/3 c shortening
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. baking powder
2-3 Tbsp. cold water
Bowl
Rolling pin
Forks
Knife
Extra flour
Pie pan
