Water-Whip Pie Crust

Jeanne Gliddon


Here is another favorite recipe from A Women's Paradise of recipes by the Associated Women For Pepperdine College cookbook that was published in 1962. This pie crust is so quick and easy and very flaky. I have been making it for years and know that once you give it a try then you will love it too!
