French Pastry Pie Crust
The crust was wonderful. It was tender, slightly sweet (but not over powering), and crisp. My Grandma who has baked pies for years, loved the crust. When I told her the ingredients, she couldn't believe I used vinegar and sugar. I've never made a pie crust before, so I wasn't entirely sure what the consistency should be. I used all 5 TBSP water, and it turned out perfect. I will definitely make this recipe again.

Squash Pie
This was a wonderful pie. I have never made a pie before, so I was definitely scared; however, it turned out fabulous. As pervious reviewers had noted, the filling is extremely watery, but it bakes up perfect. I used the individual spices as listed, whereas some people used pumpkin pie spice. I added a little extra cinnamon and nutmeg. I also added clove. Also, I used evaporated milk instead of regular milk. Lastly, I baked my squash instead of boiling it and then used a food processor (as suggested by others) to puree the squash. Everyone at Thanksgiving loved the pie and most preferred it over the traditional pie option - pumpkin pie. One thing to note, the recipe will make two 9 inch pies but don't use anything larger (like a 9.5 pie tin) if you want two pies. The .5 does make a difference and one of my pies was thinner than the other. This being said, I will definitely make it again.
