Aida's Single Pie Crust
60 mins (prep 30, cooking 30)
7 ingredients
1 servings
I saw this on an episode of Ask Aida. Makes 1 crust for a 9" or 10" pie. She suggests keeping the shortening in the freezer which will make the crust flakier. I found this dough to be easy to roll and indeed very flaky. I used the cooking time for the resting time.
