I made this today with veggie pot pie and it was wonderful! Next time I make this (and there will be a next time because this was very yummy) I would maybe add a touch of herbs like basil or parsley (dried) to the dough and maybe some finely shreeded cheese (this works out great if you haven't tried it add about 1 cup and mix as usual) If you try this recipe you won't be dissapointed! Thanks! Read More

All I tasted was shortening when I ate this. I plan to try "healthy pie crust" and "healthier pie crust" from allrecipes. Read More

Does the job when in a pinch but it rolls out much better if allowed to rest. Read More

This recipe is very easy to prepare. I used 7 tablespoons of water and the dough was easy to roll out. This is an excellent plain flaky crust for pot pies but for fruit pies I would use my favorite French Pastry Pie Crust from this site. Read More
