My mom made the most delicious pies and her crust was always so flakey; just like it should be. I have revised her recipe to be more healthy and free from Trans fats. If making a savory pie such as sweet potato or a quiche, try adding a teaspoon of finely chopped rosemary to the flour.
  • 4 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups of shortening, (I use “Earth Balance” shortening. You can purchase at any health food store).
  • 2 eggs
  • milk
  • dash of salt
  1. Slightly beat eggs in measuring bowl; add enough milk to measure 1 cup.
  2. Mix flour & salt and cut in shortening.
  3. Add egg mixture and mix to form a ball of dough. Cut in half and separate for top & bottom layers.
  4. Roll out dough & form one layer into pie plate.
  5. Place filling inside & repeat with remaining layer on top.
  6. Bake at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes to an hour. Watch carefully not to burn.
