My Grandma Platt taught me how to make the perfect pie crust. No matter the humidity, how much you roll it out, or the temperature, it always comes out perfect and makes a wonderful flaky crust. I use it to make all my pies including the ones I sell at the local farmers market.

I haven’t made this just yet but wanted to thank you for posting the recipe! This is the one I used for years and then somehow lost and forgot it, have been searching! So thank you, and my family thanks you as well! I used to make 15 crusts at time, roll them out and freeze. They are perfect every time! Read More
