Recipe by jan in Waterloo

Have your kids help you to make this easy to prepare pastry. Add ingredients and SHAKE IT! Recipe makes enough for 5 pie crusts. I use it alot for quiche. Cooking time depends on how you are using the crust.

This was fun! I was fairly skeptical at first, but this was a great dough. I needed to add a bit more flour (but I live in a humid place, that's not uncommon). It rolled out nicely, and tasted delicious in both the sweet mini pumpkin pies I made as well as the savory meat pies. The crust was nice and flaky after baking, even with repeated rolling. Thank you for posting!
