Pie Crust Recipe No. 2

This recipe was easy for pie crust.  It flakes perfect when eating but when you are making the dough it is nice and solid to work with. This makes one deep dish pie.  Next time I will only freeze for 25 mins bc mine was solid as a rock when it came out...I must have a super freezer :0) Also, I used 6 Tbsp of ice water.  This is my go to crust!

New Year 2016

We made bbq ribs, mashed potatoes,  and sauerkraut.

This year we used the crock pot for sauerkraut. I added minced onion, minced garlic, and 3 heaping tablespoons of brown sugar. I cooked on high for 7 hours. It wad so yummy. Husband approved!

Review of Brut
Floral and citrus fragrance with an extreme bitterness fizzy taste. Out of all the champagnes we have tried,  Dom is our least favorite.
