Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust
September 15, 2009

I don't often remember to come back and rate and/or review recipes after I print them out and make them. I either like them and add them to a pile of recipes that I occasionally make (the pile of recipes for an excess of some fruit or veggie, the need something special for guests, or recipes for party food, etc. OR I don't like it and toss it. But this recipe is one that is do good, I simply couldn't NOT come on the site and rave about it. The recipe is perfect as it. Don't touch it, don't mess with it. Period. I have never been able to make a good pie crust ever. I always seemed to mess it up and make it too dry or too mushy, no matter how careful I was about adding the water a teaspoon at a time. This recipe is the best thing I have ever seen in terms of foolproof. If you take this recipe and just add everything and follow the directions, you will have the best pie crust you have ever tasted. Add to that the fact that it is by far and away the BEST tasting pie crust I have ever eaten (and I have french grandmothers and have lived in Italian bakery neighborhoods of NYC) bar none. If you are reading this, throw away every pie crust recipe you have and put this one in your heirloom recipe book. And then thank the lady who submitted this!!
