absolutely the easiest and best tasting crust i have ever made,,, i will never buy store bought crust again,,,, thanks for a great recipe...
I have always made Tenderflake's "Never Fail Pie Crust" the way my mom taught me - today I learned a real keeper! This is an excellent crust with alot of flavor and tenderness. I made it for PAC spring 2009 with EliteTwig's Elitetwig's Healthy Ham and Mushroom Mini Pies and will make it again and again. I think this would be an excellent pie for "Rollie Pollies" the way my mom made them - or for any fruit pie. Nice that it is set for a single 2 crust pie! Thanks for a great recipe. I'll post photos later.
