    I am a beginner at baking pie's and this recipe is absolutely fabulous. I add all 5 cups of flour to the bowl and use fridge cold OJ. This recipe is very easy to roll out, does not crack and handles well. Once baked it has a wonderful texture and works very nicely for fruit and meat pies. For anyone who is frustrated or intimidated by making pies this recipe is the one for you. EnJoY!!!!
