This is my very own Grandma June’s famous pie crust. It’s good, really good. The saddest thing is I’ve never made this pie until this year. I feel like a bad granddaughter. I don’t know how I haven’t made this before. I guess every year on holidays, my mom or one of my aunt’s makes the pie. Truth be told, I have always thought pie crusts to be a lot of work and time and sometimes I’m just not down for that.
So when I stumbled across this recipe again and looked at the directions, I realized it’s way easier than I thought. Okay, the recipe card only had ingredients and no directions, so after I called my mom to ask what the directions are, then I realized this dough is EASY! Four ingredients, mix, chill and roll. Done.
But just like so many old school Grandma recipes, this one has shortening in it. Nothing like a little shortening to take it up a notch. Chocolate chip cookies and pie crust with shortening, Grandma June ain’t messin around.
This crust is super flaky and light, which I love. I made an apple pie when using this crust, that recipe is below as well if you are looking for a fantastic and also easy, apple pie. You see a theme with me? Feeling very Thanksgiving time around my house and I love it.
