Grandma's Secret Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
This recipe is fantastic. I'm not a baker - we rarely eat sweets - but I needed to make a pie (two pies, actually) and the raves about this one were very convincing so I tried it. It is truly excellent. I practically beat it to death and I was so scared I'd ruined it, but it came out lovely. It does only make roughly enough for just over 3 single crusts, but that's all I needed. I used unsalted butter with no ill effect (the thought of "vegetable shortening" is not one I can personally deal with). I made sure to use ice water and I refrigerated the dough for a couple of hours before I needed to use it. It was quite stiff when I rolled it out. Lovely flavor, tender, crispy, flaky. If I have any complaint it is that it seemed to take a bit long to brown up. Thank you, thank you!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2013
This is an ok cookie recipe. Nothing special. We used all lovely ingredients and these were really just ok. Nothing negative, just not exquisitely good. I'm not really sure why all the raves. I put a touch of extra vanilla, but perhaps it could have used a full extra tsp. Didn't knock our socks off.
