Oh my goodness gracious. Yum. I consider myself a pretty active baker, but for some reason pie has never held much of an interest for me. It never excited me enought to want to bother with it. I think it's because I hate crust. It's boring and bland and not good, in my (previous) experience. So when I've made pie in the past, it was usually half-heartedly, with a pre-made crust. In the last couple of years, I've started baking exclusively with butter, and it's opened my eyes. I can't believe how I ever got by on margarine and shortening! Anyway, finally got around to making my own crust with this recipe and my trusty new food processor. Baked my apple pie using two crusts, baking till almost done, then brushing with an egg/cream mixture sprinkled with sugar, to make it pretty. I am a changed woman. Looked amazingly professional and gorgeous and tasted so good my eyes almost popped out of my head. Now I must make pie. Lots of pie.
