the people before me have said good things for this recipe but personally i tryed it and it was ver frustrating because it kept breaking apart and in the end it was just way too flaky.I have been cooking for a long time and i also took a cooking class where we learned how to make pastries and such. But i like trying new recipes and i can promise u that i will never try this one again.

My first time ever making pies, I used this recipe to make five double-crust apple pies and four pecan pies. They came out great, even though I messed up the first two crusts trying to roll them out between two pieces of wax paper. The rest rolled out beautifully on a floured tabletop. I used lard for the shortening. The crust was so flaky.
