Never fails. Great for making pies to put in the freezer. For frozen chicken pies, freeze filling first, then add crust. Cover and return to freezer.

Barbara, Fantastic crust! Thanks for posting it in Talk when I was so desperate! I ended up freezing it as you suggested but I ended up baking it saturday (before the lunch) and using something else for dessert that day. Our guests loved your pie recipe. Thanks so much!!
