Pie Shell

  • Yield: 1 deep-dish pie shell

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for surface
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup solid vegetable shortening
  • 6 to 7 tablespoons ice cold water

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Mix well. Add the shortening and mix until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the water and let sit 1 minute. Either using a fork or your hands, carefully press the mixture together to form a soft ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
  • Remove the dough from the refrigerator and place it on a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough into a circle about 12 inches in diameter and 1/4-inch thick. Gently fold the circle of dough in half and then in half again so that you can lift it without tearing it, and unfold into a 9-inch by 2-inch deep-dish pie pan. Crimp the edges and chill again for 30 minutes before baking.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Bake pie shell until golden, about 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely before using.
