I made this recipe (Butter Crust) for my very first pie crust making. It turned out GREAT!! I used my food processor and the crust came out very buttery flavored and deliciously flaky. I will NEVER buy a premade crust again. I will definately have to try the other crusts as well. Thanks paula giles for such a wonderful recipe!

It's particularly galling to me because my mom could just about wave her fingers in the air and conjure up the best pie crust to lay ones tooth upon. Mom's crust has just met it's match (vinegar recipe). Now take a look at my crust. What does that tell you, hhhuuummmm??

I have made the butter crust two times now and really enjoy it. I am so glad to have an option without shortening. I process mine in the food processor for ease. Also, it makes enough for two pie crusts so next time I will make half a recipe.

The vinigar pie crust is to die for...I used it to make pumpkin pie. I tried to leave out a bit of the stortening and just use 1 cup instead but it really needs the whole 1/1/3. I also added an extra tsp of vinegar just because I love stark contrasts in the tastes, it turned out superb. This crust would be perfect for meat pot pies too. I will keep this recipe for years to come, its a winner!

I did the butter recipe, but halved it because I only needed a bottom crust for a pumpkin pie. It was delicious and flaky!

I made the butter crust recipe for a chocolate walnut pie and it was delicious! The dough stuck to my rolling pin a little; just make sure you have ample flour on hand. :)
