      I finally found the perfect pie crust after trying so many. Just the right amount of moistness and flakiness and the taste is wonderful. I haven’t found a filling that did not like this crust. An apple pie made with this crust is to die for

      It was a bit too dry, I had to add a bit more water to it. For a single, I would recommend using the whole doh that you make.

      This was a very good crust. My husband really enjoyed it. My 12 year old actually made this in the food processor. I will make this from now on. Thanks
