When I turned 40 this year, yikes, still a bit of a shocker to see those numbers, I said the one thing I will do is make my own crust for my fabulous pie. (not that I am NOT ambitious! but there is beauty in keeping it simple, and in a good crust!)
Some feedback from friends, a little research on google, and I was set to make it. I am sure somewhere in my past I have made crust from scratch. But nothing that I carried with me to my adults days.
I learned the most important part: temperature is cold. I would even ice my hands a bit before mixing in the drops of water.
And it came out GREAT!! Mmmmm. Flaky, made with butter and actually quite easy.
So ta-DA!! I've accomplished my goal. (nothing like John's 100 pots though!! Maybe someday when I am older...ouch, sorry John.)
