This is a fool-proof pie crust!! I logged onto my account, just to give this review. I was making a chicken pot pie for the first time, for dinner tonight and because of the ease on how to make this pie crust, I figured to give this a shot. I started w/the food processor but found that it was too small for the job. I had to cut the butter into the flour mixture manually. Then, when it was coarse, I transferred it back to the food processor. Big mistake! It made the dough a very gummy & doughy consistency!! I still finished it, as I needed crusts for the chicken pot pie. However, I was prepared for this to come out to be one of the worst pie crusts in history (not the recipe's fault). I had trouble shaping it, rolling it out (this is my first try at making a pie crust from scratch) and pre-baking it. End result=the flakiest pie crust. EVER! Hubby and in-laws were dishing out compliments left and right about the crust! Thank you, Chef John, for this no-fail recipe. One call out: I didn't anticipate for the pie to shrink a bit, but this is a small, very minor flaw, and can easily be my own fault.
