Since I didn't get around to posting a recipe yesterday, you get two today. And since today is pi day (3.14, March 14) here is my mom's recipe for pie crust.
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup shortening
1/2 cup very cold water
Mix together the dry ingredients. Cut in (with a pastry cutter or two knives) the shortening until it's mixed and crumbly. Add water last. Roll out on lightly floured board. Makes two pie crusts or one double crust (bottom and top crust - like on an apple pie).
Bake shell at 425 degrees for 15 minutes.
For a filled pie, bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes then turn down to 375 degrees for 30 minutes. For filled tarts or individual pies, bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes then turn down to 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
