CHOCOLATE PIE CRUST - It's Awesome with Peanut Butter Pie

Make-Ahead Pie Filling Recipe

This pie crust is easy to work with and very flaky. Add the ice water one tablespoon at a time, and toss with a fork after each addition.

My homemade pie crust recipe can be used for any pie, quiche, pasty and anything else you can think of...

For a no-bake pie (such as my favorite, fresh strawberry), bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes. For a pie which isn't as sweet, I would also recommend adding 1 tablespoon of sugar to the flour.


1/4 cup vegetable shortening
1/4 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup ice cold water

Mix shortening, flour, and salt together with a fork or a pastry blender until very crumbly. Add as much water as needed to hold together, and mix lightly with a fork.

Roll gently on a floured pastry cloth to about an inch larger than pie plate. Fold carefully in half, lift to pie plate, and unfold. Press into pan.

For a single-crust pie, trim with a small knife to about 1/2 inch beyond rim. Fold up, and pinch so edge of pie is raised from rim.

For a two-crust pie, trim bottom crust to edge of rim, fill, and top with crust about 1/2 inch larger than rim. Tuck top crust under bottom along rim. Seal with floured fork. This crust is awesome with any of my homemade pie recipes.

Here's a tip that I use every time: to prevent a soggy pie crust, brush a thin layer of egg white over the bottom crust before filling. Works every time.

This is a wonderfully simple homemade pie recipe was printed in the Wisconsin State Journal via Cooks' Exchange column. It has nothing to do with doughnuts.

Krispie Kream Summer Pie

3 to 4 cups crushed Rice Krispies
1/2 cup homemade brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup toasted flaked coconut
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 gallon homemade vanilla ice cream
Chocolate Shell syrup, optional
fresh berries, optional

Mix first 5 ingredients together. Set aside half of the mixture and place remaining mixture in two 9 inch pie pans, or one 9x13 inch pan.

Spread softened ice cream on top and cover with reserved mixture. Freeze until firm. Cut into eights as serving size pieces - drizzling with chocolate shell and topped with berries. This recipe can easily be cut in half.

ice water

2 TBS flour
1 cup homemade brown sugar, packed
