I will admit I haven’t made this in a while as I just haven’t had the time. There was a time that this was the only pie crust I’d use though. I plan to try my hand at it again soon when I make some Fried Apple Pies.
Pie crusts are always something fun that the kids can help with too. My littles love to get the scraps or ‘extras’ that I cut off the sides. They make their own little pies or designs with them. It’s edible play dough!
Whipped Pie Crust
- 3/4 c. shortening
- 1/4 c. boiling water
- 1 T. milk
- 2 c. all purpose flour
- 1 t. salt
Put the shortening in a mixing bowl.
Add the hot water and milk.
Tilt the bowl and beat until it is creamy and holds a soft peak.
Sift the flour and salt together. Add the mixture.
Mix well, just until it forms a soft dough.
