    I can’t believe it the same recipe that I got from my grandma Vantine. I have never seen a recipe that has the spoon of vinegar in it…we call it the Vantine pie crust. I live in Michigan and we have used this recipe for 3 generations.

    I haven’t mastered pie crust from scratch, but the pie filling itself I always make from scratch. The best coconut cream pie I made was using a fresh coconut grated, and the coconut milk used to make the custard. Nothing better than a scratch pie. I always make banana pudding from scratch—box filing is “pudding” while scratch is “puddin’”.

    my mother-in-law’s (she’s 93) pie crust recipe also calls for the vinegar in it and it’s super flaky. It’s never failed me and it also keeps in the fridge raw for up to 6 weeks. I love making a batch of it and just using it up as needed for pies and quiches over the weeks.

    Could you publish the recipe for the custard pie? It’s hard to find a good recipe for this pie. Thank you.

    I can’t wait to try this recipe.
    My mom taught me that a good pie not only has to taste good but
    look good. She always crimped the edges so they looked perfect.
    A beautiful pie always tastes better.
