Making a homemade pie crust is easier than you think when you use these step-by-step instructions complete with photos with this recipe.

In a medium to large mixing bowl, cut the chilled shortening into the chilled flour/salt mixture with a pastry blender, as in the photo. Two knives being used in a scissors fashion will work as well. A food processor or stand mixer may also be used according to the appliance manual.
