"This is an easy crust to make ahead and the amounts match the package sizes so there is no need to measure anything! These freeze great. Making pies is easy as all you have to do is thaw the crust and roll."

2 (12 ounce) cans
diet lemon lime soda
I'm on my second batch of these. They roll out beautifully and are easy to work with. I sometimes have to cover with foil in the last minutes of baking because they brown easily. The only difference in our recipes are mine calls for regular soda, not diet.
This is my third time to use this recipe and I sincerely hope it is better with the modifications I have made. The two previous batches were made exactly as directed but the resulting crusts were balls of grease...there is either TOO MUCH SHORTENING or TOO LITTLE FLOUR...same difference....additionally it needs salt. These are the changes I have made. 7 lbs flour, 3 lbs shortening, 2 T salt, 28 oz soda. Wish me good results as I REALLY need a good bulk pie crust recipe.
20 cups of flour = 5lb bag
This is the best! I make pies for a local restaurant and even my largest bulk recipe doesn;t come close to this one. I will be using this LOTS!!! Still a nice, flaky texture that handles well. thankyou for sharing.
Makes a delicious, flaky pie crust. Freezes very well. My family ranted and raved about how good this crust was.
Extremely easy. I cut this recipe down a lot in order to try it. I cut it to 5 servings and got about the amount needed for 5 crusts. I put four in the freezer and used one for a quiche. It worked perfectly . . .I think I may make more of this crust to hang out in the freezer for more quiche. thanks for the recipe!
Wow, is this a lot of pie crusts... but very tasty and flaky, and they do freeze super well! The only thing I could complain about is finding a bowl/tub big enough to mix them in all at once, but it's really such a small thing to whine about when they're so convenient afterwards! ^_^ Five gold stars, two thumbs up, and thank you so much for the time saver!
While this wouldn't impress the avid baker in my family, it is perfect for me! On a busy night it's ideal to thaw for a quick quiche or pot pie. Just make sure to make the "baseballs" big enough. I made them too small my first try so had to use two per recipe.
