Not that this is really a revelation but I used the No-Fair Sugar Cookie dough for pie crust and it was delicious. Everyone really commented how crisp it was instead of the soggy stuff we usually end up with when making pie with curd.

Ahuvas, I agree the NFSC does make a good pie crust.

Mgigglin,
If you want traditional âflakeyâ pie crust, you may want to consider the recipe Cooks Illustrated published in November 2007 that they call âFoolproof Pie Dough.â The addition of vodka really makes a big differenceâ¦the dough rolls-out like rolled fondant and is super flakey when baked. You can find videos and the recipe at:

With a âno-failâ and a âfoolproofâ recipe in your cookbook, you should be set. Have fun!
