This recipe was handed down to me from my Nana who said it has been in our family for at least 200 or more years.
Everyone who eats this crust always says it's the best they've EVER had.
The crazy thing is, it actually smells vinegary when baking but don't let that fool you. Just wait until you taste it.
Oh! And it's so easy to work with, you can actually save the trim and re-roll it.
