    way too soft for a pie crust, could barely roll it bc it was so sticky, definitely add more flour. and don’t use this crust if you’re making apple pie, simply turned to mush the second the filling hit the crust

    When I baked the empty crust the crust shrank into ghe bottom of the shell.

    Maybe a bit too much butter for me but still it's a good recipe

    Dough was perfect. I have tried many recipes. This one was target on. Used egg wash for finishing. Saved. Now my go to pie crust. Made chicken pot pies with this. Amazing. It’s not going to be perfect, you might need more or less water or flour. Tacky not stick. Outstanding. Thank you

    turns out perfect. If I want super flaky I barely mix it. stir and press just till it comes together. If I want something a little breadier I mix a tad more and add a little more water to the mix, then add a bit more flour while I'm needing.

    Tasted great! First time making a pie crust. Really does make 2 crusts. Just need to roll it out very thin

    Easy flaky pie crust. Very easy to work with and required no fussy chilling or shortening. I used mine in a quiche and made the scraps I to raspberry jam cookies. I found the crust to be a bit salty, but that may have been because I omitted the sugar. The recipe doubles fine.
