Aunt Linell makes the best pies, and always shares. This is her crust recipe. Easy to make with the kitchen blender and with a little practice your crust can look as good as it tastes.
Aunt Linell's Pie Crust
- 1 1/2 sticks of butter
- 3 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1/3 cup shortening
Place the ingredients into a blender and pulse several times until ingriedents are well blended.
Then add 1/2 cup orange juice
Pulse again until dough just begins to ball up. Your done, don't over do it!
Chill for 30 minutes, and roll out two 9 inch pie crusts.
To add a little extra to the crust, brush it with an egg wash and sprinkle course sugar on top. My grandkids pronounced that it is sparkly!!!
