Help! Need CRISP pie crust recipe for one crust cream pie!!
I've been absent from GW for some months but now am in a pickle. I have searched the web high and low and can not find a recipe for an "earth shatteringly crisp/crunchy" pie crust. Let me explain.
In my part of Central Virginia there was a BBQ restaurant that was famous for their cream pies. The place has gone out of business after 50+ years (or more). Their cream pies (chocolate, coconut) had bottom crust that was REALLY delicious. This crust was earth shatteringly crisp when your fork cut through the pie. There was always some crust left on your plate when you finished the slice of pie. The crust was relatively thin and flaky and it was ""brown"". Not golden brown but brown. The best way I can describe the color is "ginger snap cookie" brown. Not as dark as a brownie.
Can anyone tell me how to get my pie crust recipe to come out crispy/crunchy like this. This crust is made with flour - not cookie crumbs or other crispy ingredients.
Any and all help is appreciated.
