“This is a recipe I have been using for over 20 years because of the simple ingredients and massive flavor! This is a buttery, flaky recipe. I don't want to use a lot ingredients when I make pie, so when I found this one, I stuck with it, and I have had compliments on it almost every time I use it. You will not believe how good it tastes and the wonderful consistency of the dough.”
2 pie crusts
