Reviews for Pastry for Single-Crust Pie
"Have been searching for a pie crust recipe for chicken pot pie. Oven temp and time would really help new bakers."
"My entire family loved, even the picky ones"
"This pie crust is the **ONLY ONE** I use. Would recommend baking at 425 degreesfor 8-9 minutes, depending on your oven. Excellent results every time!! making Farm Journal's Lemon meringue Pie later today once crust has had time to cool."

"There is no oven temperature or length of time to bake this pie."
