Best Ever Pie Crust

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Lacielou

I make about 45 pies every Thanksgiving and I've tried every pie crust I've found. This crust is the easiest to work with and has great taste. It is flakey too!

This recipe is like a recipe I found years ago, called French Pie Crust. It is so easy, tasty and very flakey. I use white vinegar. This dough is also very forgiving, as I think I might handle too much, but this crust seems not be effected by too much handling and rolling, etc. I recommend it to everyone who is interested in making a good homemade crust!
