    Bec's Note:

    This recipe can be used for almost any double-crusted 9- or 10-inch pie, sweet or savory. If you're making it for a pie that has a single crust, wrap the dough you don't need and freeze it. You can make this ahead too- The pastry can be frozen for up to 1 month.

      Moist and buttery tasting, and I couldn't have asked for an easier recipe. I used it to make a pot pie, and will use it again the next time, too!

      I made a lemon mergine pie yesterday using this crust and my husband raved & raved about how good it was. Finally, I've found a pie crust recipe that's a keeper!!!! Thanks, Bec for sharing this recipe.
