Pie Crust.

Without a doubt, it is the starting point for all good pies. Good flour, good butter, and a good hand to make it.

Pies. Mmmm, pies.

Or perhaps I should say,
“Mmmm, crust.” Of all the temptations in the kitchen of a baker, pie crust scraps are my undoing.

What’s not to love about all-butter pâte brisée?

Pies, to me, are all about the crust. Pie crust needs to provide a hearty balance for the sweetness that sits atop it.
