After many attempts at making crusts like my mother's , I gave up and used the pre-made ones at the store. Last holiday season, faced with making about 20 pies for a house full of company, I decided to put my faith in Martha's recipe. I figured it couldn't turn out worse than my other attempts. Since I started using this recipe, no more tough, nasty crusts. I have gotten many compliments and enjoy making crusts now. Using the processor keeps me from over kneading the dough. Thanks Martha!
