Buttermilk Pie Crust Recipe

I lost my prized buttermilk pie crust recipe. Just the crust recipe, not the pie. It had about 4 ingredients, buttermilk (1 cup?), flour (?), shortening (?), and salt. I need the amounts to use.


Thank you for any help.

2 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup (1 stick) chilled unsalted butter, diced

1/2 cup chilled solid vegetable shortening

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk

Good luck.

Thank you so much for the quick response. I really do appreciate it. I got this from my mother in law and she died unexpectedly a few years ago & my father in law just tossed/gave away many of her things.I had no access to it anymore. I always use this for my pies, nothing else. My recipe didn't use sugar, I may leave this out or try it at least once with it.

Thank you for saving my holidays. Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, & have a safe Happy New Year! Jan
