I used to have such a hard time with pie crusts. the i talked to a master sous chef, and he told me to not handle it much, and to use real lard if I could. He said cut it in, but it’s okay if there are big chunks still left. Then try to roll it out only once and put it in the pie plate. I now think they are so easy–and so much cheaper than store boughten. The other tip is practice. My grandma and great-grandma were experts at pies, but they made them all the time, and a lot of them when they made them! The more you do it, the better you get!
This is so useful! I’m going to try and make my own now!
