Easy Peach Pie Recipes

My mother made the best pies ever. Of course, we all probably believe this to be true of our motherís recipes, but this is really good pie crust and it is very easy to boot. This pie crust is great for Thanksgiving pumpkin pie, pecan pie, apple pie, coconut cream pie, or any other holiday pie recipe that you may have. Read on to find out how to make it.


5 cups all-purpose flour

1 Tbsp salt

2 cups shortening

1 egg

2/3 cups water

1 Tbsp brown sugar

1 Ĺ Tbsp vinegar

Measure the flour (make sure to level off each cup of flour with a straight edge like the straight side of a table knife) and the salt and place them in a large mixing bowl. Cut the shortening into the flour mixture using a pastry blender until the mixture is pea-sized and resembles cornmeal. Do this using small amounts of shortening at a time (about a half a cup as you go).

In a small bowl beat the egg and water together. Add the brown sugar and then the vinegar.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix gently. Knead the dough well and then let it rest for about 10 minutes. Roll the dough onto a floured surface but leave the dough a little thicker than for your usual pie crusts. Allow the pie crust to roll onto the rolling pin and transfer it to a pie pan.

This wonderful holiday pie crust recipe makes enough pastry for two 9-inch two-crust pies. Bake it according to your holiday pie recipe.
