Grandma's Pie Crust and Apple Pie

Grandma's Pie Crust and Apple Pie

This is my very own Grandma June's famous pie crust. It's good, really good. The saddest thing is I've never made this pie until this year. I feel like a bad granddaughter. I don't know how I haven't made this before. I guess every year on holidays, my mom or one of my aunt's makes the pie. Truth be told, I have always thought pie crusts to be a lot of work and time and sometimes I'm just not down for that. 

So when I stumbled across this recipe again and looked at the directions, I realized it's way easier than I thought. Okay, the recipe card only had ingredients and no directions, so after I called my mom to ask what the directions are, then I realized this dough is EASY! Four ingredients, mix, chill and roll. Done. 

But just like so many old school Grandma recipes, this one has shortening in it. Nothing like a little shortening to take it up a notch. Chocolate chip cookies and pie crust with shortening, Grandma June ain't messin around. 

This crust is super flaky and light, which I love. I made an apple pie when using this crust, that recipe is below as well if you are looking for a fantastic and also easy, apple pie. You see a theme with me? Feeling very Thanksgiving time around my house and I love it.
