Flakiest Pie Crust

Posted by: Gina  :  Category: Italian Baking

Who doesn’t want a flaky pie crust? Without a doubt the flakiest pie crust in the world…Mamma’s. Okay we are a little biased. It is one of our favorites so we thought we would add it. Here is her recipe:

Ingredients

1 LB Tenderflake Shortening
1 tbsp Salt
1 tbsp Sugar
1 tsp baking powder
5 cups flour

1 Egg, 1 tbsp vinegar, top up with ice cold water to measure 1 cup. All these ingredients make 1 cup of liquid which you will add in stage 2.

Directions

Mix flour, salt, sugar, baking powder and tender-flake ingredients into a large bowl; mix gently and just using your fingers.

Using a measuring cup beat 1 egg, add the tbsp of vinegar and then top up with ice cold water. Do not exceed 1 cup of total liquids. Add to mixture gradually until you reach desired consistency.

Mix and roll and you have your pie crust.  Add your favorites fillings, cover with same dough and bake.

Yield = three complete pies (top and bottom).  The instructions will yield enough dough for 3 each 10-inch pies with a crust top or 6 each bottom shells.
