Easy Homemade Pie Crust in Bulk

Ingredients

  • 1- 5lb bag of all purpose flour (hold back about 2 cups)
  • 4 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. + 2 tsp. salt
  • 1- 3lb can vegetable shortening
  • 4 Tbsp. vinegar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups water

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour (don’t forget to hold back 2 cups), sugar and salt.
  2. With a fork or pastry cutter, combine the shortening with the flour mixture.
  3. In a separate bowl (I use the empty shortening container to minimize dirty dishes), beat vinegar, eggs and water.
  4. Add the liquid mixture to the flour mixture and blend with a fork until all ingredients are moistened.
  5. Continue to blend using hands and fold dough into a ball.
  6. Cover and chill at least 15 minutes.
  7. Divide dough into about 20 balls. Each ball should be enough to make a crust.
  8. To freeze, wrap dough balls in plastic wrap, then store in a freezer bag indefinitely.
