A Thanksgiving related question

Here’s what I want to know: how many of you make your own pie crust?  (I also wrote about this at Food Lush today, but I am very curious.)  I grew up in a house that made pie.  A LOT.  I mean, when you have cherry, apple, and peach trees in your back yard pie is sort of a necessity.  And we always made the crust.  So I grew up thinking that’s what people did.

I’ve always sort of equated it with buying prepared cookie dough.  I was aware that you could do it, but not sure why people would since 1) making it isn’t hard and 2) the homemade product is FAR superior.  But the subject of pie is big right now (what with Thanksgiving being tomorrow and all)  and I keep hearing about how nobody wants to make pie crust.  So do you make pie crust?  And if not, why not?

  1. Um, are you trying to rub salt in my wounds?! JK I prefer the taste of pre-made crusts to the ones I've made. Maybe this is just because I grew up on pre-made and I'm used to the taste? Or I think I often don't roll it thin enough. I've always used butter and I'm going to try shortening this time around so we'll see how that goes.

  2. I WANT to make my own pie crust but it is hard to get it to come out right and very messy! I suppose if I practiced enough, I might be able to get it, but there just doesn't seem to be much time for practicing things like that these days =(!
