      Excellent but I needed much more than 2 tbsp of cold water. Other than that I followed the recipe and its excellent.

      This is a really great crust recipe! It mixed up right away the first time and wasn't messy. Great for a beginner like me! I was kind of surprised by the egg in the recipe but I didn't notice it at all. I used the recipe as a pastry for baked apples so its really quite versatile. Thanks for sharing! This is a keeper!
