    Awww, dave! Thanks for your five. I'm always willing to help a "lonely"(yeah, right!) bachelor. And you get extra points for calling me darlin too! Still love the hat! Happy New Year, dave.

    Looks good.
    i would suggest itterating that the beans are dry! (as in, not to be consumed, and just there for weight)

    suggested tags to add: simple, basic
    (i like searching for "basic recipe" on google, and stuff so that I get something easily modifiable!)

    It IS easy! Good for you, hill! Pie crust was never my thing either but when it comes together so nicely it's hard to resist making your own. Also it is convenient to have a few frozen crusts around. Thanks!

    Pie crust isn't my best thing and this was easy and tasty. My family loved it an Thanksgiving dinner

    You're welcome! And it tastes so buttery and is so flaky too, michael. I always have a few crusts plastic-wrapped and bagged in the freezer for emergencies.. lol.
    Thanks for the five, michael.

    It totally IS as easy as pie, otter! I had never even considered making a "real" crust but now I usually have 2 or 3 double crusts in the freezer just awaiting my command. And you, know, you three pals of mine, the ingredients here are cheap enough that if you screw them up you can start again tomorrow! I don't have as much luck with "shortening" crusts or even lard crusts. Thanks, to all three of you for the fives. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

    You make that easy as pie! I must admit the crust has always intimidated me. Being able to get over that will open up lots and lots of new recipe opportunities. Thanks and I am adding this to the Cooking Hints group.
