Easy pie crust.

My mother was known for her fabulous pies. Before I was able to cook, Mom let me help her make her delicious pies. She let me roll the crust out and put it in the pie dish.

A great pie is made or broke by the pie crust. This pie crust keeps up to its name- it won't fail you. Even if you need to re-roll it, this pie crust will hold up.

Why stop there? This recipe makes 2 pie crusts, so if you're only making one, roll the rest of the dough into a ball and freeze for later! Or double the recipe and double the fun!

Thanks for the post/recipe!

Can't wait to try it.

Can this crust be used for fried pies? Apple, peach, lemon?
