    I made it. It was great, easy to make, easy to work with. I don't have a food processor so I used my hand mixer. It works. Thanks for this simple and good recipe. I made my banana cream pie and it was DELICIOUS!

    The first time I tried this, I didn't add enough water and the dough cracked when I formed it in a disc. I made this again today and ended up using 4 Tbls water. Came together perfectly! Taste so much better than pre-made. I'm never buying store-bought again!

    What if you don't have a food processor? The last time I made this I tried mashing the butter into the flower and my pie crust tasted like a moist cracker. Additionally, Martha, you give no baking time or heat requirements. WTH?

    I see chucklyn likes this recipe and says it is easy. At first I thought it might be a Pate Sucree, but after checking it is not as sweet, which suits me perfectly. I am not a baker, never learned the simplest of stuff, so I really need an easy pie crust. Maybe next year I will try this....... gettting fat just dreaming of a pie.
