I think part of the problem some of the users here have is because the recipe does not tell you to keep the butter as cold as possible - this is the clue to any great pie crust - butter should stay cold cold cold. The best thing to do is mix all the ingredients lightly then balling it up and letting the crust sit in the fridge (to get the butter cold again) and then quickly work the crust for the tart. Doing this the crust worked fine and tasted great.
Having just made this recipe for the second time I'm wondering if this isn't actually my favourite pie crust. Here's my original review from a couple of months ago: I was very happy with these tarts and I only made two minor changes to the recipe: I didn't have unsalted butter so I just didn't add the extra salt and I used maple sugar instead of brown sugar but since the flavour didn't really come through next time I probably just use brown sugar. I should note that I did have to flour up the work surface and the rolling pin pretty well to keep the dough from getting to sticky but otherwise it was great!
I didn't make the pie crust since I had a crust in the freezer I wanted to use up so I'm not rating the crust today. I also didn't use a top crust as a result. This is a nice little recipe for apple tarts. I just made one apple tart instead of several. My only complaint is that the apples take a while to bake down and I'd like a little more sauce or something with it but otherwise this is a nice recipe. When I am out of pie crusts I'll try the crust and top crust from this recipe. Thanks for the recipe!
I liked this recipe but I made a lot of changes. I used pecans apples brown sugar and maple syrup. I also used prepared tart shells and just pulled up the edges to make them fold over. They were a hit at my meeting.
