Holiday Cheer - Best Pie Crust Ever!

Best Pie Crust Ever Recipe!

For years I always used my mom’s pie crust recipe which is made with Crisco and is fabulous – I was the pie queen when I lived in San Francisco and would always bring one to a dinner party. Usually filled with a mixture of fresh local berries.

But then a few years ago I tried this new recipe, and in my opinion, it’s the best one I’ve ever used. The main reason is that it’s a DREAM to roll out. No falling apart. Plus it may be the flakiest one I’ve ever tasted. Secret – chilled butter!

I found this recipe in a Martha Stewart magazine.

(Sorry about the crinkles in the paper, but you should be able to see the recipe fine)

Just fill with your favorite fruits! For the top pie crust, I just beat an egg, add in a little milk, and brush on top. I love how golden the pie crusts look that way. Let me know if you try this one - I think you will love it!

I have this old binder of recipes that is overflowing and sometimes I will find notes from my notes and stick them in. This sweet one is always behind the pie crust recipe. Many moons ago but so fresh in my mind of when they were young.
