    My Mother always told me the less you handle dough, the better it will be. This is too simple! And it makes the flakiest crusts for pies.

      This recipe was amazing! I am not a great pie crust maker so I am always searching for that perfect recipe. I had some doubts as it sounded bizarre, but it worked just as Deb said and it was great. rolled out perfectly and was the flakiest crust ever

      I have never been very good at pie crusts. This came out perfectly. I used it for Granny's Banana Cream Pie Granny's Banana Cream Pie and it was just fantastic. I froze the other half of the dough and worked in some garlic powder before rolling it out for some thrown together meat pies. Perfect recipe. I'm so happy I can make a nice pie crust now!! Thank you!
