We loved this crust


The recipe is a rather simple one. I wish she had shown how to make the fancy edges. My pies taste delicious using this recipe.


This gave me confidence to start making my own pie crusts. I did it and it turned out. For the first time in over 30 years I can now make truly homemade pies. Thank you.


It really helped me to make a flaky crust pie crust. The lady that guided me step by step was wonderful. I would review it to refresh my memory.


This makes a great pie crust! I'm not a big pie crust fan, and loved it. My husband says its the best he's ever had!


This is such an easy recipe that my granddaughter can even make this one.


This recipe makes the flakiest crust ever. My family thought it was store bought. Thanks
