I’ d love to just print this off on a single sheet for my cookbook binder and it is just a pain to cut and paste it all. I’m sure I am not the only one interested in such a thing. :) Thanks for thinking about it.

Me too! I spent a lot of time making sure everything was really cold and stuff but it was probably the toughest pie crust I’ve ever made(and trust me, I’ve made quite a few)! I made it in a triple batch, so that might have been the problem. Next time will try it in just a regular batch and see what happens! P.S. Never set a glass pie plate with a perfectly baked pumpkin pie on a glass top stove to cool. Someone may come behind you and accidently turn on the wrong burner…that’s beneath your pie. Glass pie pans will explode. :)

The flour and Crisco were not freezing. I chilled the dough overnight . The texture was perfect, the taste was perfect and the handling wax the best I’ve experienced in 32 years of pie baking…the only strange thing was that the scalloped edge did not hold its beautiful shape ! Should I have chilled the filled pie for some time?

I’m making a strawberry rhubarb soon, and I think those stars would be utterly delectable.
Roll out, cut out, layer? How does the outer edge get the crinkle then, would I just leave a little more, 1/2″ or so on the bottom layer?

If I am making a cream pie do you blind bake? Or do you just cook as is? Do you have an estimated time, or just watch it?
Thanks again for the tips. I might be emailing you again for more help as I attempt :) Thanks for being my kitchen guru friend that I can ask all my questions to!
