Making pie crust always intimidated me for some reason, BUT NO MORE!
This is so crazy easy! So flaky! No fail! During the holidays when I know I'll be using a lot of pie crust I make up 3 or 4 at a time and keep them refrigerated.
The flaky buttery taste will make you say "no more" bought pie crust too!
If you're intimidated like I was..just give it a try...you'll be so pleasantly surprised YOU CAN DO IT!

    Pulse 8-12 times until the mixture has a "pea size" texture.
