"I thought I had already found the perfect pie crust recipe on this site - until I tried this one! I substituted butter for the shortening (avoiding the transfats). I used it for a chicken pot pie re..." See morecipe and it was the most delicious, tender, flaky crust imaginable! Remember to use very cold water and do not knead the dough any more than is absolutely necessary or you'll end up with a tough crust. This will now become my one and only pie crust recipe. Thank you so much for sharing this one!"
"I was a little worried about this crust because of the vinegar. I've never heard to do that but it was delicious! I didn't have any shortening so I used butter and it gave it a great flavor. I used..." See more bread flour (again that's all I had) so i used a little more flour than it called for and the recipe ended up making enough for me to make 6 single pie crusts! Will definitely do this with all my pies!"
