The dry ingredients are mixed together and cut into the shortening. The wet ingredients are mixed together and incorporated into the flour-shortening crumble. The pastry rolls out easily, bakes up perfectly, and makes three pastry shells.

INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):


  • Combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Cut in Crisco until pea sizes form.
  • In one-cup measuring cup, beat egg yolks and add COLD water to fill entire one cup. Add to the mixture. Do not overmix. Divide into thirds.
