Amish Never Fail Pie Crust

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by PAUL P.

I've had this recipe for a long time. It's the only crust my wife asks for whether I'm making pot pies, fruit pies or turnovers. It makes awesome homemade Hot Pockets too. You can substitute whole wheat flour for all or some of the AP flour. This is enough for a 9 inch 2 crust pie, two 9 inch single crust pies or 10-12 hot pockets. You can double the recipe if you have a really big mixing bowl for OAMC.

I made a Taco Pie for my Husband's Birthday last night with this recipe. The crust was flaky and had a great flavor. My Husband loved it. Preparation was easy in the food processor with a dough knife. I followed the recipe completely with no substitutions. This is my new favorite pie crust recipe. I will be using it again and again.
