Impress your guests this holiday season by baking a truly homemade pie with a flaky crust made from scratch! Making a homemade piecrust is a bit more time consuming than purchasing a pre-made, refrigerated or frozen piecrust at the grocery store, but it is well worth the extra effort. Best of all, you probably have many of the necessary ingredients and tools already inside your refrigerator and kitchen cabinets. While it may sound like a lot of work, it’s easy when you ditch the hand-held pastry blender and use an electric stand mixer instead. So pull up your heavy-duty mixer lift from Willow Lane Cabinetry and let’s get started!
