Never-Fail Pie Crust

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. + chilling


2 (9-inch crusts)

Even novice bakers who normally shy away from homemade pie pastry can't go wrong with this recipe. It's so easy to roll out and produces a tender, flaky crust every time.—Ruth Gritter, Grand Rapids, Michigan


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar


  1. Combine flour and salt in a bowl. Cut in shortening. Add milk and vinegar. Shape dough into a ball. Chill for 30 minutes. Divide dough in half. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each half to fit a 9-in. pie pan.
