Making pie crust seems to be a daunting task to many home bakers, but with this Moms pastry recipe, you will make successful pie crusts every time. There is nothing like the flaky texture of pastry in pie recipes. Pie crusts hold your sweet or savory filling enhancing their taste. This quick and easy pie crust includes shortening, which is any kind of fat that can solidify at room temperature. Butter may be used as well, although the texture of the dough could be different since shortening tends to be softer than cold butter even if it's refrigerated. As a result, the version with shortening may be softer and harder to handle than the butter version. If you aren’t sure whether you prefer shortening or butter, consider using a half cup of each to get the best of both worlds. Pastry baking takes practice, and everyone learns what kind of fat they like their pastry recipes prepared with as time goes on.
