Deep-Dish Piecrust

This nearly foolproof recipe makes a double batch of dough, enough for a bottom crust and either decorative cutouts to place atop your pie or a lattice top. The recipe describes how to make a crust with decorative cutouts for the Classic Pumpkin Pie (see related recipe at left), but if you're making a lattice pie like the Salted Caramel Apple Pie or Latticed Cherry Pie (see related recipes at left), after shaping the dough into 2 disks and chilling it for at least a few hours, simply follow the instructions provided in those recipes; there is no need to prebake the shell before filling it, as described here.

Awesome crust
October 27, 2013
I have been making this piecrust since 2006, every single year. It is challenging to make, but worth it. Very, very yummy. I think it took me 2 years to perfect it, but again, it really is worth it. It's perfect, too, if you plan to make the cute leaf cut-outs to decorate the pie.
Pros: Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again
Cons: Lengthy

Great crust
November 23, 2012
This is a really good, staple pie crust recipe. It takes awhile, but most pie crusts take a few hours to make. If you're looking for a staple pie crust recipe, I definitely suggest trying this one out.
Pros: Kid-Friendly, Adaptable, Will Make Again
Cons: Complicated, Unhealthy, Lengthy
