Introduction: Jenny's Secret Pie Crust Recipe

MAKE SURE YOUR PHOTOS ARE UPSIDE DOWN! This is the most important step. If you skip this step you will not make great pies. well, you might make great pies... but they won't be Jenny pies.

THE RECIPE (yields two crusts, or a top & bottom)

2c Flour
1tsp Salt
2/3c Shortening
3tb Butter
1/3c Buttermilk

Plain and simple ingredients. Nice 'n' easy :)

STEP 1:
 Combine Flour, Salt, Butter, and Shortening into a food processor.

Step 2:
 Pulse the combo for a second at a time until the consistency of lumpy grainy sand is acquired.

STEP 3:
 Add the Buttermilk into the "sand"

STEP 4:
 Pulse again for a few seconds at a time until a lump of dough is formed. 

NEXT STEP:
 Dump that Lump onto a floured surface.

ANOTHER STEP:
 Flour your rolling pin and roll that lump out.

YET ANOTHER STEP:
 Put that Lovely dough into your pie pan

MORE STEPS:
 I like to fold the excess edge dough back into the crust. Who doesn't love thick flaky crust?!

LAST STEP:
 Pinch the edges pretty if you like, but I did not. I like to keep it Rustic. It's not that I'm lazy. It's rustic.

ONE MORE STEP IF YOU NEED TO:
 Blind bake that crust in the oven if you are doing a chilly little pie whose filling does not require a bake. BUT DON"T FORGET TO FORK THE BOTTOM FIRST! or you'll get horrible yummy lumpy bubbles on the bottom. not attractive.

NOW, go make a filling and enjoy that pie!

cutie.
