A simply beautiful, perfect pie crust. Easy to roll out (even easier to mix since I used the food processor), rich and flavorful, thanks to the egg, butter and sugar; tender and flaky. A light egg wash of a beaten yolk and a little water gave this beautiful crust the beautiful golden sheen it deserved. One of the best and easiest crusts I've ever tried.
I agree with the other reviewers that this pie crust is absolutely wonderful. Great taste, texture, AND very easy to work with. I use this recipe to make Old Fashioned Apple Dumplings by Micki. If you're making pie crust for the first time, this is a good one to start with...you can't mess it up. It's super easy and super delicious. Your diners will be impressed. I used all butter...no shortening (my family can't have shortening). And when I cut the recipe in half, I beat one egg, and simply pour half of it down the drain. I use King Arthur all-purpose unbleached, unbromated white flour. Absolutely delicious! Thank you SO very much for sharing this recipe!
This pie crust rolled out velvety smooth and was an absolute pleasure to work with. The crust is slightly sweet with a hint of lemon. This has to be one of the flakiest, most tender pie crusts I've ever made, and it will be my go-to crusts for fruit pies.
We used all butter. It turned out great! A simple, reliable, easy to handle pie crust. Will use again!
it was a hit with the kids,,,they ate it with whip cream
very good and easy pie crust I made it to go with the "grandma's lemon meringue pie" on this site. Will make again
My first attempt at pie crust, and it turned out great! I had been nervous to try, but it was painless! Thanks for a great recipe!
I used this recipe for ALL of our Thanksgiving pies and they turned out great! I also used it for a chicken pot pie (I cut the sugar in half), also awesome.
