I have never made a pie before and decided that if I was going to make pie from scratch I was going all the way. I found this recipe VERY easy to follow and didn't have any trouble at all with overworking it (as that seems to be the biggest reason my friends and family DON'T make their own crusts). Usually at my family gatherings there is always pie crust left on the plates once everyone has had their fill but not last night!! Even my super finicky brothers (who normally wouldn't have eaten any pie but I sort of didn't give them a choice. :) ) gobbled up every last bite AND went back for seconds! It was very moist and flaky and I didn't have any trouble with my fruit pies leaking through the bottom. I did only give this recipe 4 stars, however, because I wound up using ten tablespoons of water, not six. Having never made pie crust before I had no idea what to do with the crumbles I wound up with originally and it wasn't until I double checked other reviews that I knew to add more water. Otherwise, rave, rave, RAVE reviews from everyone at our Thanksgiving dinner last night. Fantastic recipe!
