Futzing with a Pie Crust Recipe

Emme | Nov 22, 2004 03:18 PM

I haven't found a pie crust recipe I love yet. I know there's the simplest: shortening, flour, ice water, salt, and maybe sugar. Some include vinegar, some half butter, some all butter, some lard. Some use half cake flour...

I don't want to use lard, but I was hoping to experiment and wanted some premature feedback...

I was thinking of subbing brown sugar in for the white. I was also toying with the idea of putting in a tablespoon or so of molasses. How do you think these would affect, alter, or make the crust "not work?"
