|This Red, White and Blue Pie is the perfect finale for your 4th of July Picnic!
1 baked pastry shell
Perfect Pie Crust:
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup shortening
3 T cold butter
4-5 T ice cold water
Combine flour and salt in large bowl; mix well. Cut shortening and butter into flour mixture until it forms crumbs the size of small peas. Sprinkle 1 tbsp water over flour mixture; gently toss with a fork. Repeat with 1 tbsp water at a time until mixture is moist, starts to follow fork around bowl, and forms a ball of dough. Gather pastry dough into a ball; flatten to round disk about 1/2 inch thick. Cover and refrigerate dough 30 minutes. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and roll out to desired size with a floured rolling pin. Bake at 450 degrees for about 10 – 12 minutes or desired level of browning. Cool completely.
