Something happened last week that made me realize it was high time I learned to make a proper pie crust from scratch. What happened to prompt that awareness I will share tomorrow, but the truth of the matter is, I realized how could I truly live this long in my life and not have mastered the art of making the perfect flaky pie crust from scratch?
In years past, when I’ve made pie (like my Praline Pumpkin Pie) I cut that ‘homemade crust’ corner and either bought a premade deep dish or rolled out the frozen crust variety. So it was time I consulted an expert to teach me how to truly make a proper pie crust from scratch.
Of course when one wants to master the art of anything, one turns to Google for instant gratification. Wouldn’t you know it, when I searched for ‘Perfect Pie Crust, up popped Paula’s recipe with rave reviews.
Five stars? Click. I’ll try that one.
First the ingredients.
