Main Ingredients

3 cups unbleached flour

3 tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 tbsp sugar

1/4 cup shortening, butter, olive oil, or coconut oil

1 cup room temperature water, added a bit at a time.


1Preheat oven to 400.

2In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Add in the shortening, and mix until the shortening is incorporated. It will be a bit crumbly. Add in room temperature water a bit at a time until the dough comes together - it might not take the whole cup. It will look sticky and start to look a bit fluffy because of the baking powder.

3Turn out dough onto a floured surface, shape into a disk, and place in a 12" deep dish pie plate or round casserole. Press down gently, and score the top in squares to make 16. The ones on the edges will be rounded; that's fine. Place in the oven.

4Check after 25 minutes. When pulled apart, dough should look cooked in the middle.

Additional Notes

Marilyn's pro tips: clean your mixing bowl right away or it will be a nightmare to clean up later on. If it doesn't turn out well on your first try, Marilyn says to keep trying.
