I was on a mission to make my first double crust fruit pie and declared two things; First, my crust would be made from scratch. Secondly, it would not taste like wet, unflavored dough.
The research started with asking family and close friends if I could have their recipe for a homemade pie crust. To my surprise most of them use the store bought stuff (hard side-eye) This made me realize that the store bought stuff can’t be that bad. APPARENTLY, I’ve been eating it my whole life with no complaints! LOLOL! So, I will say when you’re really short on time use the pre-made crust if you absolutely have to… sigh.
