Evelyn - I can't believe I never posted a review of this crust. I have become a very good baker (she said shyly) and ever since trying this recipe about two years ago, it is the only one I use AND I have given it to many people. I absolutely love this pie crust. Note the date, I am making a delicious pumpkin pie for my son - Merry Christmas to you and your family.

This was a very good pie crust. Easy to work with and came out light and flaky, just the way we like it. Thanks
