1. You should make more pies. Start here.
Your pie won’t be bad. Even if it’s ugly or slumpy, the filling too runny or too stiff, the crust too tough or too crumbly — if you made it yourself, there’s really no way it won’t taste good. PROMISE.
If you’re still not convinced that this deliciousness lies within your power, here’s a step-by-step guide to making a flaky crust that you can fill with any fruit you like. Really. (Any fruit!)
Ready? LET’S ROLL.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
2/3 cup vegetable shortening (if the idea of shortening scares you, use another fat like butter or lard)
About 6 tablespoons ice water
