This crust is like a sugar cookie and it's easy to make. You can also use a food processor to make it.

I will make it again, but wish I had read the reviews first. It was incredibly difficult to roll out and kept breaking. Eventually, when I was about to give up, I grew brains and rolled it out on wax paper and transfered it to the pan from that. When I was ready to put it in the oven, I rubbed a bit of water over the top and sprinkled sugar on it, and wrapped the edges in aluminum foil. It was the best looking pie I've ever made, and my parents said they had never tasted better, either.

This is the recipe my mom taught me about 40 years ago. EXCEPT, we adds more sugar! That's funny...she said it was a family secret! You must be in the family! Great crust recipe for the first timer. You'll be the talk of the town! To manage the richness of the crust, roll crust out and place the crust into the pan with wax paper.

I love sugar cookies and this crust really does an apple pie justice. I made an apple pie with it and it sucked up the flavor of the apples and cinnimon really well. It was like eating a cookie along with my pie.
