You can always buy pie crust from the store, but why deprive yourself of the joy of making your own pie crust! The best thing about making pie crust is the leftover dough that you roll out, cut into squares, cover in sugar and cinnamon and bake on a cookie sheet until it's just barely getting light brown, but not crispy. Throw in a glass of milk and eat as many as you like. You deserve it. You made the pie crust.
1st bit to mix and set aside
Preheat the oven to 475
1. Mix together the first bit of water and flour and set it aside.
2. Mix the flour, Crisco, and salt when it is dry, incorporating it with a fork or pastry cutter if you are a fancy pants. (This is the mashing part).
3. Mix in the 1st bit you set aside.
4. Chill the whole mixture in the fridge for about 15 minutes (or a quick chill in the freezer).
5. Roll chilled dough on a floured surface.
6. Makes two 9 inch pie crusts
7. Place the pie crust into a pie dish and form it to the pie dish and fluting the edges.
8. Cut off the extra dough for your squares.
9. Poke holes with a fork randomly in the bottom and sides. It's the secret to prevent bubbling.
7. Bake at 475 for 8-10 minutes if you are doing a pie that requires a cooked pie crust, like the chocolate pie. If you are doing apple or pumpkin, then you bake the crust with the pie filling in place.
Pie, it's good
Young Agent K: We need pie.
Agent J: What?
Young Agent K: My grand daddy always said, if you got a problem that you can't solve, helps to get out of your head. Pie, it's good.
Agent J: Pie?
Young Agent K: Yeah.
Agent J: Your grand daddy, heavy set man?
Young Agent K: A little bit.
Agent J: Yeah, you know what? We've been doing smart stuff, we've been following clues, doing real police work. It might be time we do something stupid. Something that ain't got nothing to do with nothing. Ah, you know what? Now I want some pie, K. I want some pie. Let's go get some dumb-ass pie!
[J walks off]
Young Agent K: Sounds good.
