One of the few cooking classes I have ever taken was years ago--many, many years ago!--to learn how to make a perfect, perfectly easy pie crust. The recipe makes 4 single crusts, and freezes easily. Make one recipe and throw what you won't use right away into the freezer for later use. This recipe is so easy you will wonder why you ever purchased ready made pie crusts.
One of the things I love about this recipe is how easily it goes together. When I took the class food processors hadn't been invented yet (told you it was a long time ago! Some of you weren't born yet...). If you don't have a food processor, a pastry cutter or two knives work just fine. As a matter of fact, pressing the fat into the flour mixture with your bare hands also works just fine. If you have a full sized food processor, you can throw this together in under 10 minutes.
4 c flour
1 T sugar
1 3/4 c fat (can be all of one or a combination of your choice: butter, lard, vegetable shortening; I prefer all butter or half butter and half lard. People write long essays about the benefits of each...)
Check out youtube videos about techniques for rolling out the dough and forming pretty edges. It's not hard, promise!
