    Really nice. :) Great flavor; flaky; all you could ask from a pie crust. Note to those wanting to try this recipe: It won't seem that you have added enough water, and the dough will seem difficult to work with after being chilled. Keep working with it, though, and it will become very workable soon. - 3/13/10

    Thank you,MCOLEEN, for posting this. The recipe that I was using had the same ingredients, but yours uses less of the ingredients and was better proportioned for only two crusts. I didn't refrigerate the dough, used ice water and needed an extra T of it, but it rolled out beautifully and was flaky. - 8/8/09

    Mcolleen, I live in the dry high altitude of Colorado, how would that change your recipe with the water?
    Thx. Kelly

    This is exactly like my old freezer crust mix except for real butter instead of Crisco with its dangerous hydrogenated fats. Made it for our Thanksgiving pies.I had to use 17 T. water, 4 times amount given, but turned out well. - 11/24/10

    I think this is a great recipe. I sub. Smart Balance Buttery Spread for the butter, because I have to watch my cholesterol. It lowers the calories to 96.9, fat to 4.7 and has no cholesterol. Excellent! - 11/10/07
