Most Incredible No Fail Pie Crust

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Karen..

This is absolutely the best pie crust I have ever used. It never fails me and always comes out flaky and perfect. This recipe is enough for 2 - 9" crusts.

Great recipe! I am terrible with a rolling pin but this recipe patches well without adding more water. Also, it comes out of a pie pan clean as a whistle. Those of you having to add water, remember that the flour that you throw on the counter to roll the dough in comes out of the total flour needed, and not in addition to. Leave the last 1/4 cup of flour out of the mixer to roll the dough in.
