Okay, so it didn't technically save my marriage, because it really wasn't in jeopary, but it added to my husband's happiness! My husband's favorite dessert is hands down apple pie. I had the apple part down to absolute deliciousness
but the crust was another story.
My husband was used to my aunt's perfect crust and my crust was much to be desired, so I was on a mission to find the perfect crust. My aunt uses butter Crisco, it never worked out for me. Plus, my aunt doesn't measure anything,
just mixes it. How frustrating is that...I always thought baking was a science...I was wrong!
So, I was on the search for the perfect pie crust. This is where butter plays it's part. I tried to recreate my aunt's...failure. I tried several crusts from Allrecipes...failure. Until I found Butter Flaky Pie Crust
! I would have never thought using all butter would produce the most perfect pie crust. Well it sure did and my husband
was happy as can be.
So long story short, butter was my saving factor in the search for making my husband's favorite dessert...apple pie!
