Shake-A-Pie Crust

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by deb k

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
