Easiest Ever Mix Crust (neverfail!)
Better Homes and Gardens Magazine

Makes two 9” crusts

1-3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
2/3 cup shortening (Crisco)
1/4 cup cold water

In small mixer bowl, combine flour, salt and baking powder. Add shortening and beat with an electric mixer on low speed till ces are the size of small peas (about 15-20 seconds). Add water all at once; beat on low speed just till moistened (10-15 seconds). Form dough into a ball then divide in two. Roll as usual.

Oatmeal Pie Crust

1/2 cup flour
1-1/2 cups oatmeal (quick oats or regular)
1 tsp. salt
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup melted shortening (Crisco)
2-1/2 cups sweetened fruit of any kind [fresh or canned]

Combine all except fruit. Pack crust mixture, reserving 1 cup of mix, onto the bottom and sides of a pie pan. Put fruit in and sprinkle reserved mixture on top. Bake at 375 deg. for 30 min.
