This is the best pie crust recipe!
"Since we live in Germany we have to make pie crusts from scratch, as they are not sold here. This recipe worked great. The pie crust was tender and complemented the filling well.
We made one minor change. We ran out of shortening and substituted the remaining third with butter.
Nice tip about the milk and cooling the dough first before rolling it out. That made the work much easier."- Indeterminacy

EmptyLighter 6 months agoToo much liquid is called for as posted, I mixed wet ingredients and only used about 2/3 of it. Texture was good and fluffy. Be sure to fold several times before rolling out. I had enough left over to patch holes and do a lattice crust.
SweetSueG 10 months agoIm a huge baker but have mental block when it comes to pie crusts. I'm ashamed to admit I use...boxed. I wanted chicken pot pie,but no pie crust mix so I halved this recipe and even used liquid egg product. Had to add extra flour, but it was amazing!
Ethanwolff 11 month agoThis is a really great recipe. The crust is easy to spread out and is crispy when you cook it. And it's really delicious.

BreSorensen 2 years agoI made this crust for an apple pie. I used a fork to prick the the bottom crust before adding the filling. It was flakey with a slight crunch. Very good!

Caroline711 2 years agoI decided to make my first homemade pie last weekend and this recipe could not have been easier! I altered the recipe slightly (I added cinnamon sugar, about 3 tablespoons for apple pie.) Delicious :)
