EASY NO FAIL PIE CRUST
Everyone needs a go-to, no-fail pie crust recipe, so I wanted to share mine with you. But first a back story.
Every Christmas my side of the family has a tradition, passed down from my Swedish roots, to have a smorgasbord. Well, naturally, as the oldest sister, the cooking responsibility fell to me. One of the very first years I started cooking this smorgasbord, I made a French silk pie using a butter crust recipe. But for some reason, the pie crust had turned to some strange translucent, rubber-like consistency. Mr. Gracious now admits (at that time, we were still just dating) that he was pretty disappointed and concerned about my pie-making abilities, as pie is his absolute favorite dessert. Everyone chewed on their rubber pie silently, until I finally broke the ice and mentioned that there was obviously something wrong with the pie!
I have never used that recipe again. And much to Mr. Gracious’s delight, I have found the perfect flaky pie crust recipe that turns out. Every. Time. It’s flaky. It’s delicious. And best of all, it’s NOT rubbery. So here is my no-fail flaky pie crust recipe. Hopefully my sharing will help you to never have a similar pie-baking incident.
Let’s get to the recipe.
