Does anyone have a go-to pie crust recipe? I thought there was one in VwaV. There's a Strawberry-Rhubarb-Peach pie that refers to "the pie crust dough" and the index says there's a pie crust recipe on page 246, but that page is blank (in mine, anyway.) I want to make mini apple pies and I haven't made regular pie crust in about a billion years.

Never mind, I'm dumb as a stump. The one I thought I'd seen in VwaV is in Vcon. It doesn't show up in the index because it's under "pastry crust," not "pie crust."

Mods, you can delete this thread unless someone wants to tell me that the Vcon one is unreliable and they've got a better one.

for one crust:
1/4 cup shortening, cold
1/4 cup margarine, cold
1 cup all purpose flour
up to 1/4 cup vodka, very cold.

Cut the fats into the flour. Add the vodka a little at a time and mix with your hands until a ball forms. Refrigerate until ready to use.

You could also use water instead of vodka, but alcohol doesn't form gluten with flour as well as water does, so vodka crusts are super flakey.

Yep, this is pretty much my go to. Though trying to keep cold vodka on hand is surprisingly challenging.

Whoa. I will be trying this for sure. If only for the novelty of an alcoholic apple pie.

Only some. Something baked for 45 minutes will still retain about 30% of its original alcohol content. But 30% of two shots worth in an entire pie is hardly going to get anyone hammered...
