I AM NEVER ATTEMPTING PIE CRUST AGAIN!!!!!! (unless you help me)

Nikki NYC | Jul 5, 2013 07:08 AM

Can you tell I am frustrated? I have been trying pie dough for years. I actually do quite a bit of baking and I have every piece of equipment you can think of. I have read every blog and every book and I follow every single instruction to the letter. I usually use a food processor, a la Martha Stewart and many others. But every time my filling is prepared and I begin to roll out my dough and think, "This is the one! I've finally done it!" I do that first push of my rolling pin and the dough cracks. Every flipping time!! The only thing I haven't tried is to add vodka (maybe I should drink some right now?) because we don't drink much and I'm not buying a whole bottle just to try it out. Can you tell I have a messed up dough on my counter sitting next to a beautiful pie filling right this very minute? Ok, sorry for feeling sorry for myself, but I could really use your help. Thanks. Nikki
