This pie dough is excellent for making fried pie crusts (like hot apple pies and turnovers), because it absorbs very little grease.

Got a hankering to make a batch of small pies filled with your favorite filling and fried up crisp and delicious? Then, this is your dough recipe. Make it by hand or in the food processor.
