How to Make Perfect Pie Crust

Step-by-Step

  1. In a food processor, place all ingredients except ice water.
    Let mixture stay in processor until crumbled.

    BEARTOOTH: Cut slits in the pie crust edging, then turn up every other one.
    BRAIDED EDGE: Take three 93) thin strips and braid, then place on edge of crust with water as a glue.
    NOTE: 1 egg to 2 tsp. sugar makes a good glaze - do this during the last 5 minutes of baking @ 350.
