Yes, have some.
Aunt Margie got me a "pie making kit" at my wedding shower [11 years ago], and I was embarrassed to not have ANY of it in my new kitchen. No rolling pin, no pastry cutter, no glass pie dish, ugh! (it must be in storage) Being the baking queen that she is, she made due with the "tools" I had and created this:
I would say the key to any pie is a good crust...and obviously a delicious filling. I do buy graham cracker pie crusts for my yogurt pie (I'll share the recipe soon) but for regular pie crust I'm not too sure why you would buy it ready made with the "from scratch" is so quick and easy to make.
Perfect Pie Crust
1 cup Crisco
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
Blend with metal pastry blender (or fork if yours is in storage)
Add 4tbsp. ice cold water and stir (it should be crumbly now)
Add 3 more tbsp water and work with hands until all dough pulls away from dish.
Place dough ball onto floured surface and roll to about an 1/8 inch thick.
Place in baking dish and fold over any excess on the sides.
To crinkle the edges, press your thumb like so into the dough:
For the lattice topping, roll another piece of dough out and cut into thin strips to criss-cross over the top of the filling.
