Perfect Pie Crust
30 mins (prep 20, cooking 10)
6 ingredients
6 servings
This is my Mother-in-law's recipe and it is amazing. A delicious, flaky crust. The yield is for 3 pie shells. You can freeze the pie dough in balls or rolled out and placed in pie tins.UPDATE April 2011 - I am changing the yield to 6 pie shells instead of 3, since this is what you can get if you roll them thin and have no top/lid on the pie. If you want your crust thicker then you would get less yield
