    Easy and versatile. Took out sugar added garlic and rosemary for base to shepherds pie. Yummy.

    I used my food processor and it turned out perfect! Much better than the frozen ones in the store, I also left out the sugar for a savory tomato pie.

    Made it with a KitchenAid and it came together perfectly. Gave a solid crust that didn't crumble, and it didn't give me a hassle to roll out! A little on the rubbery side, but that's possibly because I shorted the butter a bit (6 Tbs)

    Very good! Seemed like it wasnt going to work at first because it was so crumbly, but after forming into the pan it turned out well and tasted great

    I changed it slightly. I wanted to create small pie crust cookies...which I guess are just biscuits. Lol. Instead, I added: 2 tbsps of white granulated sugar 1 tbsp of brown sugar 1 tsp cinnamon 1 tsp of nutmeg 1/2 allspice And I replaced the last tbsp of water with vanilla. Instead of chilling it in the fridge for 30 min I chilled it in the freezer for the same time but wrapped in a log. I cut thin slices off the log and baked at 375 for 18 minutes. Tasty biscuits. This still would probably make a tasty pie crust, just wasn’t dedicated to actually making a pie today.

    Good! Very crunchy at the top. Also very easy, although getting the dough together was kind of difficult, unless I made it wrong

    Easy and delicious! My mini apple pie was a success because of this super easy to make crust. I swear I'll be making more pies in the future

    Made mini muffin pan apple tarts with this. So easy. Used my kitchen scale & mixed with my hands (1st time) - so only 1 bowl to wash. Fabulous. The key is using the right amount of water so it holds together, but isn't too 'wet.'

    It's easy and perfect! I've been doing it for a long time and you can make it sweet or savory. I even made hand pies.

    The amount of water was not enough and the crust turned out hard and raw like . Will not be using this recipe again .
