      This is my favorite roll-out pie crust. However, when I first started making it I was disappointed with the edge because it puffed while baking, making the neat, decorative pinched edge no longer visible. After a few trials, I discovered by accident that refrigerating the completely assembled pie for 30-90 minutes before baking keeps the edge looking neat. Now, I do this every time.

      Excellent. I used this for a crust for Chicken Pot Pie. I improvised because I was too lazy to get the food processor out and used my immersion blender instead.I had great results and a light flaky crust. Thanks for posting!
