Pie Crust Recipe

My Lord of the Rings fans, I have neglected you so. To get a better understanding of the way LOTRO works I downloaded it and started playing. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't confused but I'll get there. 

I am offering you my pie crust recipe and my humblest of apologies. 









You will need:




2 1/2 cups (300 g) flour
1/2 tsp (3 ml) salt
3/4 cup (180 g) butter
6-7 tbs (90 ml) of water






This amount of dough will make enough for a top and bottom crust. If you are interested in a dutch topping cut the ingredients in half.











Mix the flour, salt and shortening together until the dough looks crumbly and flaky.








Add water slowly while stirring with fork until dough holds together when pressed.






On a floured surface divide the dough into two equal parts and roll into balls. 






 I don't buy plastic bags or plastic wrap. It's me trying to be green. I save empty bread bags and use them for storage.
Put the dough into a freezer bag and store for up to 6 months.
