  • Dissolve salt in the water and add the water to the flour mixture a small amount at a time mixing it just until the water is absorbed and the dough holds together.

Beautiful and flaky. Hubby loves it!!! But I do have a question, can you freeze this dough. I would love to make this and divide it into individual crusts because I make usually a pie or two a week Read More
