Picture of Perfect Pie Crust
There's this pie crust that my mom makes. I've never had it anywhere else, and I really love it. It's not flaky, not buttery. It's not sweet or oversugared. It is a simple, understated pie crust that tastes a little bit nutty and molds like play dough.

This recipe makes two crusts.

I will try this, it looks good.
I like the creative use of a human head in the ingredients. :P
