Never Fail Pie Crust Recipe for Single Crust

The first time I went on Fresh Living to share a recipe it was my Mother’s Never Fail Pie Crust Recipe. I remember my sister in law, Connie asking if I was really going to share Mom’s recipe. Of course I told her. She would be so proud. I figure that you need to share the love and the recipe.

This is great with any of my cream pie recipes.
