Aunt Aud’s Berry Pie













Aunt Aud’s Berry Pie

Pie Crust:  2 1/4 cups sifted flour

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup Crisco (don’t use butter and don’t use butter-flavored Crisco)
  • 1/3 cup water

Sift flour before measuring.  Combine flour and salt.  Remove 1/3 cup flour + salt mixture and set aside. Using a pastry blender cut Crisco into the large portion of flour and salt.  Continue blending until flour mixture almost holds together.  Add 1/3 cup water to the flour & salt previously set aside.  Mix until smooth and mostly lump free.  Pour paste over flour & Crisco mixture and quickly but gently mix until it forms a large ball (less than 30 seconds).  Divide dough in half and roll out using as little flour as possible to prevent sticking.  Recipe makes 2 single crusts or 1 double crust.
