Pie note #9

Pie 9: When making crust, everything should be chilled beforehand: all utensils, bowls, and all ingredients including flour and shortening, if you want a flaky crust. “A flaky pie crust is one of life’s great joys. Such a crust is airy, yet has texture. It displays one of the great struggles of the universe, the tension between being and nothingness, right there in a 9-inch pie pan.” — Rob Kasper, Baltimore Sun
