Grandma’s No Fail Pie Crust

One of my best friends, Lynette, always makes us pies!  They are amazing!  One of my favorite things about her pies is the crust.  I am not a huge crust fan, but this crust is simply delicious.  When I was younger, I would actually eat the pie and leave the crust. Grandma’s No Fail Pie Crust has officially changed my mind.

Grandma’s No Fail Pie Crust is not a hard crust to make.  It is as simple as just mixing a few ingredients and rolling it out! When she said no fail, she meant it.
