This is a good crust *for the amount of effort* required. It's not the best crust you'll ever have in your life, but it is the easiest crust you'll ever make. I have also used it for a veggie pie I make (layers of sautéed peppers, onions zucchini, eggplant, and tomato with cheese) and it works great for that, too. A better alternative to store bought if you aren't up to the challenge of a real butter crust.Reply
