I love making pies. The crust recipe I usually use has been in my family for years. It doesn't use butter, but shortening and milk. So I wanted to try a butter crust and this one turned out delicious. It was easy to make and roll. I had plenty of dough for a 9" double crust pie.I recently purchased some Instant Clear Gel as I read that it was a good substitute for flour, cornstarch or tapioca. And it was! The filling turned out just right.My husband was very happy.
