Nothings says fall like pie! Harvest Honey, Erin, makes the best pie crust. She gets her recipe from Alice Waters' book The Art of Simple Food. For those of you experimenting with making pie crust for the first time or those of you looking for a way to take yours up a notch, try this recipe. The beauty of it is, it is fairly simple, but be sure to follow the directions carefully. Don't try to skip steps with a food processor or use water that isn't ice cold. This recipe is tried and true, if you follow it to a T. Erin's pie crust is always exceptionally buttery and delicious. I think she sprinkles hers with fairy dust.
