Mom's Pie Crust for a Double Crust Pie Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2014
I haven't made a pie since December. I added a generous teaspoon of baking powder. Put it in the fridge for about an hour left it on the counter while I got the apples and pears ready, then I rolled out the crust, before baking I gave the top crust an egg wash. I found this crust very easy to work with. Had to do something with the left over fruit from canning. Apple-Pear pies will be all the rage! Oh ya I left the lard on the counter over night.

Perfection! I was always a little nervous of pie crust but this came out perfect the first time I made it! Super flaky and light! This is absolutely my "go to" crust for ever and always! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Super easy to make, also easy to roll out and put into the pie pan (that's where I usually have dough breaking). It was the right amount for me for a 9" pie, easily rolled out two 11" circles. The crust thickens a bit more during baking. I thought it the perfect thickness. I used 1/2 cup of shortening, and I think it is just the right amount of flaky; not too much either. So overall, super happy :)

If you like a thick crust, like me, you can use butter instead of shortaning.

So my thoughts on the recipe is that it is not that great but I did not give it one star because it may be because of a few things. The dough needs to be really thin I think for it to be "light and flaky". I like a thicker dough so one recipe was enough for just the bottom of my 9 pie pan. Then I did another for the top pattern. Anyhow when baked it was ediable but definately not award winning. I will try to thin out the crust and then update this review but those do not want a paper thin crust this is not quite the one to use.
