Just Plain Flaky

The masters at preparing pie crust know the secret of keeping the crust flaky: handle with care. If there’s time for pie baking around this cookery, it’s Thanksgiving time. I’m testing pie crust recipes this week in preparation for an early celebration with guests on their way soon.

  1. Remember, use ice water and lard as your shortening making your pie crust melt in your mouth. Do not handle any more than necessary..

  2. Right . . . nothing but icy-cold water.

  3. Thanks for dropping by the cookery in person and here. We hope to break bread with you and yours again soon.
