It’s Pie crust day! Or post pie-crust-recipe-day anyway! One big reason to add this is because I have a three-ring binder that contains all the recipes I’ve posted on my blog. I print them out and stick them in it. They are my well-used, often-used, go-to, loved, favorite or family recipes. My pie crust recipe isn’t in it and I want it to be. Good motivation to post it.
I’ve loved how this binder has emerged over time.
I like to make pies, unless I’m rushed. They do take a bit of time and don’t go a long ways for feeding a crowd. They are pretty and feel like an accomplishment to me, though.
This was my Mother’s pie crust recipe and is oh-so-my-favorite!
A bit of dough left over! My daughter likes to eat it plain.
She and my husband and son all like butterhorn dough plain and they like cookie dough! I like Monster Cookie Dough plain. I could eat way too much of it. But, then, peanut butter, m&m’s and oatmeal. Nuff said.
Sometimes if there’s enough of a bit of pie dough left, but not enough for a pie, we roll it out, spread it with butter and cinnamon sugar and roll it up and bake for a treat. Also learned from my Mother!

Ready to go in the freezer! I so like having pie crusts in the freezer. I can usually get four pie shells out of one recipe and stick the extras in the freezer for later. This makes putting a pie together especially speedy the next time I bake!
