a super easy piecrust recipe that has turned into my "go to". You make the crust right in the pie pan, pressing the dough up the sides, allowing the excess to fall on the counter to be used as the topping!
Could not be easier, and extremely easily veganized since it's an oil-based crust.
Found this in Good Housekeeping Magazine, May, 2006. From Lindell Hughes of Neosho, Missouri. She made this as a young girl for a 4-H competition and her recipe eventually won a prize at the state fair. It is made in a 13" X 9" glass or ceramic baking dish. Cooling and chilling time not included in estimates nor is the extra hour in the oven after baking.
My family has used this recipe for years, it has even won First Prize at our local fair, many times. I hated to post this but I could not find another like it.
I use Recipe #148727 for the filling, every holiday :)
Note: I just tried this crust with Chicken Pot Pie and ummmm just the best
This will make 3 each 8" crust or 2 ea 9" crusts.
When I take the time to make crust, I make extra, I roll it out between 2 sheets of wax paper and place in the large tupperware (about 2" high) flat bowl and place in freezer...then when I want to make a pie, I can do so in a hurry!
A local restaurant used to serve Peanut Butter Pie and it was their most popular dessert. I've tried countless recipes to try and replicate it and this is it. The peanut butter taste is very mild and not over powering. I'm not a huge peanut butter fan myself but I love this.
My mom gave me this recipe. I remember her making it. Now when we go to visit friends, they beg us to bring our cheesecake. All my kids and husband can make this recipe.
You can also make this lighter by using light cream cheese, light whipped topping and light pie filling.
I adopted this recipe during the Recipezaar abandoned recipe adoption. I made this the next day and it is so delicious! The crust is so easy to work with and has great flavor! If you like your apple juices to be a little thicker, add a tablespoon of flour to the mixture. This is so delicious... perfect for first time pie makers or expert pros! Enjoy!
