It’s that time of year again!! Pie season! When I was a little girl I would visit over at my great grandmothers house. She & my grandmother would spend ALL DAY making pies – literally in batches of 20+ a day. They were both known for the family pumpkin pie recipe. I have never been a fan of that one. However spending all that time with them- I did learn a thing or two about pie. So since you (& I) will be needing this recipe through the end of the year – I thought I would share my great grandmother’s recipe for Easy Pie Crust. Now her recipe was for bulk pies. She sort of jotted it down but for the most part she worked off memory. However – I was able to break it down to what a normal recipe would be for the regular person making just one pie. It’s perfect every single time.
It’s moist & springy while working with prior to baking which is so nice. For years I had one that was way too dry & was so difficult to work with. I am so happy I was able to get this one down because it really is just SO EASY from start to finish.
This recipe is just for the one crust. You can double it if you are wanting crust on top too. I tend to make all my pies open – be it a French Apple, some sort of cream pie or a strawberry. I don’t know why. Maybe this year will be the time to change that & expand my horizons. Stay tuned for that.
I have a few other recipes up my sleeve that uses this Easy Pie Crust recipe. I can’t wait to share them with you.
This is such a fun time of year. I so TRULY enjoy making fall recipes.
Want some filling ideas? I like to make my fillings ahead of time to make whipping up a pie a breeze.
