I love pie crust and making one that looks nice can sometimes be difficult~ If the weather is hot and humid it makes the dough difficult to work with.
Here are a few tips that I use to make a great looking pie crust.
When measuring out shortening I line my measuring cup with plastic wrap, making sure the wrap touches the entire bottom of the cup. I scoop my shortening in the cup and there is no greasy mess to clean up.
Now, on to the rolling dough~
I place two pieces of saran wrap that is about 3-4 inches larger than my pie plate all around. I overlap the saran wrap so it becomes one sheet.
Plop your pie crust in the middle and flatten it a bit.
Place two more joined pieces of plastic wrap over the top of your pie crust and roll your dough out between the two sheets of plastic wrap.
Make sure it's larger than your pie plate.
(quality of this pic stinks~ I was rushing!)
Remove the top layer of plastic wrap and place pie crust in pie plate, making sure that the crust hits the bottom of pie plate in all areas. (this next picture stinks too!)
Remove plastic wrap and trim off edges.
Crimp your edges between two pinched fingers on one hand and your index finger and~ Voila!
Look how pretty!
Easy as *cough cough* Pie!
