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.

Step 1: Ingredients

  • 2 cups white flour
  • 1/4 cup wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup ice water
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 egg
And a friend who wants to be in your picture in order to get famous on the internet.
I will try this, it looks good.
I like the creative use of a human head in the ingredients. :P
