    Deantini's Note:

    This is my Mother-in-law's recipe and it is amazing. A delicious, flaky crust. The yield is for 3 pie shells. You can freeze the pie dough in balls or rolled out and placed in pie tins.UPDATE April 2011 - I am changing the yield to 6 pie shells instead of 3, since this is what you can get if you roll them thin and have no top/lid on the pie. If you want your crust thicker then you would get less yield

      This was real perfect and flacky and crunchy pie crust.
      At home I didn't mention that I was trying a new recipe and my husband said that he likes the crust.
      My pie mold is big (about 14 inches) so I prepared 4 portions with the proposed quantity.
      I filled it with 4 fried onions, fried beef salami, 6 cheese slices and a mixture of 3 eggs, 1 1/2 cup of milk, 1 tablespoon flour salt, pepper and nutmeg.

      I forgot to rate this recipe. This is my go to recipe everytime. It's always comes out perfect.I usually split the dough in 6 and make one pie and freeze the others for when I need to make a pie.

      This is a wonderful pie crust! I have never made a recipe for pie crust that makes 3 pie crusts. It really gives your arm a workout! :) However, it is nice to have that extra pie crust to freeze for later. I had no trouble rolling out the pie crust. I did not have to use all of the water, though. This turned out flaky and tasty. I used two crusts for a cherry pie and the other for a French silk pie. Thanks for sharing!
