Not a very flaky dough, but really pleasant to eat. For those who like a soft texture, with nice light flavor. Makes the pie that much more satisfying!borrowed from le Guide cuisine.

A very Simple pie dough to make. And I MEAN Simple. I made pot pie pocket with them. The dough came out nice and flaky, I didnt expect it to turn out this good with out using shorting or lard. ONLY THING I DIDNT ADD WAS THE SUGAR. that way it came out light brown.
