Alright so, someone on y! wanted my pumpkin pie recipie ( from my gramma cause shes awesome) so I'm posting it up here cause its easy :0
PIE CRUST! (good enough to make 2 pies)
2/3 Cups(140 grams) - Shortning ( Or Lard/butter)
2 Cups - All Purpose Flour
1 - Teaspoon Salt
4 to 5 Tablespoons - Water
Cut shortning into flour and salt until particles are pea sized. Sprinkile in water, 1 table spoon at a time whilst beating with a fork. Continue to mix until all flour is moistened and pastry nearly clings to bowl.
Gather pastry into ball, cut in half, and save one half (for whatever your heart desires). Roll out pastry onto floured surface ( a flat one like a counter top or large cutting board). Roll it 2 inches larger than the over all size of your baking dish.
Fold pastry into fours (gently!) lift, and unfold into baking dish. Press firmly into baking dish. Make sure there is no air in the corners!
