Oh my gosh!!!! I love this recipe!! :) This was the first time i have ever tried making homemade pie crust and it was so easy and tasted great. I have made apple, pumpkin and blueberry pie with this crust and they were all unbelieveable!!!!!! Thank you Toyo for the awesome recipe.

I found myself needing a quick crust this afternoon and decided to try this one because of the ratings. Glad that I did and the only thing I would do next time is to brush the top with beaten egg before baking for a glossy top. It works beautifully. It was used to make Dee's Turkey Pot Pie.
