My Favorite Pie Crust
This post is for the pie crust-challenged people. I don't know if I have mentioned it in a while, but I have a go-to favorite pie crust that I use for everything that calls for pie crust. I looked for one that used butter instead of shortening and also one that you couldn't mess up and I found one!
The original recipe is here. You can use part whole wheat as it calls for or all white flour. I used it tonight to make the Pioneer Woman's Turkey Pot Pie and it was good (or so said my husband).
Now I love this pie crust also for the way she does it - using a pillow case - genious! Although I use tea towels but its the same principle.
I also half or quarter the recipe because it makes a lot! I have frozen it and it does freeze well. I have tried the old fashioned shortening pie crusts and I mess them up.
With this, I stick with what works.
