really tender. I make good pie crust yet this is the first time I could see hunks of butter in crust before and after rolled out. Lots of thumbs. I rated 4 stars as I had to change to make it savory for a chicken pot pie. For that I omitted confectioner sugar and added 1/2 tsp. onion powder. And I did not have a food processor. So I just mixed in. Great recipe SC your grandmother knew how to cook!! I will try recipe as is when blackberries are ripe. I probably will be able to update stars then. Everyone who has tried recipe loved when baked as is.

Update. Still have not made with confectioners sugar though I think that would be fabulous. This time I omitted sugar & added 1/2 tsp onion powder and 1/2 tsp garlic powder This is so tender but I disliked not giving it 5 stars until I liked the taste.

I made this yesterday for dessert after dinner. Followed as written--WOW. I had no problem with rolling or placing dough in pie pan, whew! This was delicious and well worth the refrigeration routine. I did sprinkle about 1/8 tsp. sugar over crust before placing in oven. Best apple pie yet. (I have to get in practice summer is just around the corner-blueberry pie, peach pie.)

This is a fabulous crust and very simple when mixed in the food processor. I also agree with you that King Arthur flour makes the best crusts. Thank you for your delicious recipe.

Stellar. I don't usually use egg in my pie crust, but this recipe changed my way of thinking. It's incredibly tender and flaky. Could become my new standard recipe. Thanks for posting!

I use this pie crust for my cherry pie and it was very good. I've tried many pie crust in the past but this one is the best one by far. It is light, tender, flaky crust. Most pie crust I made is greasy, one reason why I don't like eating crust in my pie or eating pie for that matter. But this crust change my whole outlook about eating pie.Thank you for sharing your grandmother's pie crust recipe with us. I truly appreciate it.
