Excellent simple pie crust! I have another pie crust favorite recipe that uses an egg, and am currently out of eggs. So, I found this and decided to give it a shot. I used salted butter instead of shortening (and omitted the extra salt), and half white flour, half wheat flour. At first, once it was mixed, I was really worried that I'd missed a step because it wasn't holding together at all. Then I remembered that wheat flour needs more moisture (hello!). So I added more milk in small amounts until I reached the familiar pie crust dough consistency. At the suggestion of one other reviewer, I also added a tsp of sugar just for a little bit of sweet. It baked up wonderfully, and smelled SOOOO good! It tastes fantastic too! My Easter cherry pie was a hit at dinner. :) Thanks for the great recipe!
