Reviews forNever-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!"
"I have made pie crust for years. This is now my favorite recipe!!"
"I thought I would try this recipe because of the reviews, but it was the worst pie dough to roll out ever. I will stay with my tried and true recipe from now on."
"This works great every time!"
"I tried to make this crust and it was too flacky. I have no idea what I did wrong? I followed all the directions, even left 1/2 of the dough in the fridge 30 minutes longer? And still it was too flacky. I will go back to using my mothers recipe. Just thought I would try something else"
