This Make Ahead Mix will come in handy in the months ahead as apple pies, pumpkin pies, and any other pies will be made for the holidays.
Make Ahead Pie Crust Mix
6 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups shortening (Crisco)
-Divide evenly into three storage bags, placing just over 2 1/2 cups in each bag.
-When you are ready to use your pie crust mix, add about 5 tablespoons of cold water (sometimes I have to add a little more) to the mix, shape, and roll out for your pie.
-Each bag of mix will make two pie crusts.
If you don't want to divide your mix into three bags, you can leave it in one large, airtight container, and take out 1 1/4 cups of mix for each pie crust you make. I store my mix in the refrigerator and it will last for a couple of months.
This will work with other pie crust recipes as well. Try making up several of your favorite pie crust recipes at once. It will save you time in the long run.
If you freeze your pie filling, like I showed you here, you can have a yummy pie ready in no time!!
