Mom's Pie Crust for a Double Crust Pie Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2015
Super easy to make, also easy to roll out and put into the pie pan (that's where I usually have dough breaking). It was the right amount for me for a 9" pie, easily rolled out two 11" circles. The crust thickens a bit more during baking. I thought it the perfect thickness. I used 1/2 cup of shortening, and I think it is just the right amount of flaky; not too much either. So overall, super happy :)

I haven't made a pie since December. I added a generous teaspoon of baking powder. Put it in the fridge for about an hour left it on the counter while I got the apples and pears ready, then I rolled out the crust, before baking I gave the top crust an egg wash. I found this crust very easy to work with. Had to do something with the left over fruit from canning. Apple-Pear pies will be all the rage! Oh ya I left the lard on the counter over night.

So my thoughts on the recipe is that it is not that great but I did not give it one star because it may be because of a few things. The dough needs to be really thin I think for it to be "light and flaky". I like a thicker dough so one recipe was enough for just the bottom of my 9 pie pan. Then I did another for the top pattern. Anyhow when baked it was ediable but definately not award winning. I will try to thin out the crust and then update this review but those do not want a paper thin crust this is not quite the one to use.
