After quite a big of searching on here, I failed to find a deep dish pie crust. Found this one on grouprecipes.com and decided to post it.

If I could give this pie crust recipe more than 5 stars, I would. It is BY FAR the easiest crust I've ever turned out and probably the tastiest. The only thing I did differently was to substitute one teaspoon of almond extract for one teaspoon of the water. If you like shortbread, I would compare this crust to the consistency and 'shortness' of shortbread. Absolutely delicious and cooked perfectly within the time and temp parameters given.
