Happy Pi Day!

In honour of Pi Day (the 3.14th) here is a secret family recipe for you. This is my grandmothers fool proof pie crust. Perhaps I shall make a batch today. If the baby ever naps.

Pie Crust
5 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cups butter


Beat 2 eggs in a 1 cup measure, add 2tbs vinegar then fill with cold water.

Mix wet into dry.

Makes 7 balls of dough (so 7 pies if you are just doing a bottom crust).

Or for a fat free version, you could go with the felt pies above by Little Cricket
