This easy pie crust is made with only 5 ingredients and is perfect to make ahead and put in the freezer!
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 7 tablespoons cold butter cubed
- 7 tablespoons shortening cubed
- 1/3 to 2/3 cup ice cold water
Combine flour and salt in a large bowl with a whisk.
Using a pastry cutter, cut the butter and shortening until the mixture resembles the size of peas.
Add ice cold water a tablespoon at a time to one area of the dough and mix with a fork. Move to one side of the bowl and continue adding water just until dough is moistened (you don't want it to be sticky).
Once mixed use your hands to quickly and gently fold over the dough a couple of times. Divide into two balls.
Roll one of the balls into a 12" circle on a lightly floured surface.
Gently roll the dough onto a rolling pin and unroll over a 9" pie pan. Cut the edges so you have about 1/2" overhang.
Crimp the edges and bake according to recipe directions.
