Any pie worth its crust(pun intended) must contain a remarkable crust. I have a friend who now scrapes the filling from any pie that isn't made with the following pie crust recipe!
You just don't know good until you've tasted it.
Enjoy!
of course, you must make "crusties" with leftover crust dough!
