I finally found the same reicpe that my grandmother use to use to!! It's easy and I can now make pie crust again that never fails me. I used it to make a quiche and it worked out perfectly! Thanks for posting this, I thought it was lost to me!

I can not make a pie crust. But I can now. I rolled it between wax paper,than removed the top paper. slid my hand under, with the pie plate on top,ploped it over,fit right in.I always do this.But this crust was so tender and flaky and easy to work with.Thank you, SouthernSugar Dumplin.
