The Flakiest Pie Crust
35 mins (prep 35)
8 ingredients
6 servings
Making homemade pie crust is finally worth it! My grandmother found this recipe in a newspaper years ago. It is similar to other vinegar pie crust recipes but uses apple cider vinegar along with a combination of butter and shortening. The result is tender, extremely flaky crust with just enough flavor to compliment any pie. This recipe yields 6 large portions so you can put what you don't need in plastic baggies and freeze for a later date. Enjoy!
