It's pretty simple:
Bring 4 sticks of butter, and I will send you away with a fat, magical slice of pie, 2 of your very own pie crusts, and the ability to make everyone at that stupid potluck jealous of your crumbly, flaky crust.
Pie crust is not like a unicorn--although it has a lots of steps, and you have to be attentive, once you've seen it done right, you'll have it by the horn forever.
I am qualified to teach this course because, as my friends will attest, I make a craz-a** pie. Plus, I make my living as a French tutor which means I'm pretty okay at showing people how to do things without making them cry.
Come to pie school.
