- 1/3 cup plus 1 tbs shortening or 1/3 cup lard (i always just use butter)
- 1 cup all purpose or unbleached flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 to 3 tbs cold water
Cut the shortening into the flour until it reasembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle with cold water, 1 tbs at a time, tossing with fork until all the flour is moistened and pastry almost cleans the sides of the bowl. Grease a nine inch pie pan and pat pie crust evenly into it (i'm too lazy to roll out the pie crust, and haven't had any complaints so far.)
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 to 1 cup milk
cook any meat or veggies you want to add in. squeeze any excess water out of the veggies (if you're using something like say, spinach.) beat the eggs and milk in a large bowl and add in meat/cheese/veggies. you don't want huge amounts of stuff, because this will puff up as it cooks and you don't want to overflow the pie crust.
preheat over to 425. put in for about 45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a knife inserted comes out clean.
