Reviews for Never-Fail Pie Crust
"Super easy and delicious! I am not an expert crust maker, but this recipe makes me feel I could compete with Julia Child! I LOVE it!"
"My first pie crust (from scratch). Super easy. I used this by crust for making Buttermilk pie, and they both turned out perfect."
"I had used this pie crust earlier and liked it. Then today I wanted to make pies again, but I tried a different pie crust recipe. It turned out a flop and so I came back to this one and it worked again! I love this recipe! I was told that vinegar makes the dough shrink, so I just leave it out."
"This was easy but it did not roll out well like others said and I had to make a double batch or it would not have covered my pie."
"Used it for my first pie... loved it, easy to work with and great directions."
