Mom's Double Pie Crust

Mom's Double Pie Crust
  • 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 5 tablespoons cold orange juice, or as needed


  1. Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Cut shortening into flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add orange juice a tablespoon at a time, tossing with a fork, until the flour mixture is moistened. When you squeeze a handful of the moistened pastry mixture, it should form a ball. Divide the dough in half and shape into balls. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate before rolling.
