This is my favorite flaky crust recipe! I love crust! Make it nice and thick=perfect! Though, I think some of my family members would disagree!
Prize Winning Crust: 2 single crusts
Mix together in a large bowl and cut in shortening:
2 c. flour
1 t. salt
1/2 t. baking powder
2/3 c. shortening
Sprinkle in one tablespoon at a time and stir in:
1 T. oil
4-5 T. milk
When thoroughly mixed together, it should be gooey, it is ready to roll out!
This recipe I believe came from Taste of Home.
And here is a Prize Winning Apple Pie filling, to go with your Prize Winning Crust!
Prize Winning Apple Pie
Stir together in a large bowl:
1 c. sugar
4 T. cornstartch
3/8 t. nutmeg
3/8 t. cinnamon
dash of salt
5 c. thinly sliced apples
1 T. water
Cook filling on stove top until it is nice and gooey, turn into prepared pie crust, dot with butter and put top crust on. Seal, slit steam vents.
Cover pie with foil to prevent overbrowning,
Tip: Spray the foil before putting it on pie, this helps it from sticking to the pie and messing up your nice looking crust!
Bake @ 425 for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake 15 minutes more until browned.
Yields: 1 delicious pie!
