Totally Awesome Pie Pastry

Time: 5 mins


  • 1 1/2 cups five roses all-purpose flour or 1 1/2 cups any all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/3 cup ice-cold water


  • 1 Mix Five Roses Flour, salt and baking powder together.
  • 2 Cut in shortening with two knives or pastry blender.
  • 3 Add ice cold water, a little at a time, using just enough to bind the mixture so the dough can be patted lightly to form a ball. HANDLE AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE.
  • 4 Form 2/3 of dough into a round disc and place on lightly floured board. Save remaining dough for top crust. Roll dough from center outward, with a light, even pressure, to form a circle 1/8 inch thick and an inch larger than the pie plate.
  • 5 Fold double and lift gently into pie plate. Unfold and fit loosely in place. DO NOT STRETCH.
  • 6 Trim edges, allowing 1/4 to 1/2 inch extra all around. Put in a generous amount of filling. Heap fruit filling in center because it will cook down during baking.
  • 7 Roll out top crust; fold double and cut slits or fancy design near center to allow steam to escape.
  • 8 Brush edges of bottom crust with water, fit top crust over filling and lightly press top edges together. Trim edges evenly and flute.
  • 9 Bake as directed for pie filling.
  • 10 Yield: One 9 inch double crust pie or two 9 inch single shells.
  • 11 Single Shell:.
  • 12 Use only 1/2 of dough for each single shell. Arrange bottom crust in pie pan as above.
  • 13 Press pastry to rim of pie plate; flute.
  • 14 Add filling. Bake as directed for filling.
