“My sister-in-law gave me this basic pie crust recipe and I use it for a variety of items such as pies, tarts, savory pies and cobblers. When making this crust don't throw the leftover crust away...simply brush with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, place in the oven and bake till slightly brown. A nice little treat for the kids or yourself :).”
