When making a pie, one must always start with the crust. I used to HATE making pie because making crust by hand was always such a nightmare for me. It would either turn into a crumbly dry mess or a sticky mass, that stuck to my rolling pin and cooked up leaden....the very opposite of flaky. When I learned how to make pie crust with the food processor, it was like a revelation. I now LOVE to make pie, and, with this tried and true recipe, my pie crusts come out perfect, every time. YAY, PIE!
