Pie crust

I decided that I might need to share my grandmother’s recipe for pie crust, as many people will choose this for their Quiche and other recipes that I may share in the future.

This is not a Keto recipe, but you can substitute Almond flour for regular flour, and suddenly, you’re keto again.

Recipe for one crust pie:

1/2 cup Butter Flavored Crisco
1-1/3 cup All purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder

Cut the Crisco into the flour, salt, and baking powder until crumbly.

Add about 4 Tbsp cold water and mix until it all comes together in a ball.

Roll out on a smooth surface a bit larger than your pie plate – so a 9” pie plate needs about 15” circle.

Place the crust in your pie plate, and cut off excess around the edges.

Crimp the edges with your fingers.

Now put whatever you want into the pie shell and bake, usually at 350°F.
