Grandma Lyna's Best Pie Crust
65 mins (prep 45, cooking 20)
12 ingredients
2 servings
Back in 1912, my 13 year old grandmother ran away from home and the 12 brothers & sisters she was stuck caring for, and took a position of head baker at the Black Bear Hotel in downtown Duluth. It was a different time, back then; Pie ruled and was King, Queen and Princess. She made 50 pies per day, Monday through Friday, but on the weekends, she made upward of 75 to 100 pies. This is the ONLY crust she used for her 1000's of pies! This year, 2012, this recipe is now over 100 years old and in constant use throughout the generations. I also wanted to add, that I found out by accident that rolling out the crust between two Silpat mats is a dream come true: peels right off, NO stick! Happy Baking!
