Reviews for Pastry for Double Pie-Crust

I have NEVER liked making pie crust because I always thought it was such a pain! Well, I was wrong! This recipe was so quick and easy and rolling it out was even easier! I doubled the recipe since I was making a pot pie and an apple pie and I even had some left over!
I like it
Having never made a pie before, I used this recipe to make my first apple pie, and I love apple pie. It came out fantastic.
I just made an apple pie and this crust recipe is the best! I used the Crisco butter stick shortening and the crust came out perfect. Everyone who had a slice complimented me on the crust.
I used the butter flavored Crisco. The dough was delicious and flaky. I refigerated mine before rolling it out. It was easier to handle.
