Ben’s Pie Crust


My brother came home from cross country practice one day with a recipe. Apparently his coaches wife made the teams pies and Ben asked her for the recipe! He simply threw all the ingredients together at once and mixed it together (not knowing the usual process of making a pie crust, this didn’t seem like a big deal to him). Low and behold, it turned out perfect…and has been my viagra sample go to pie crust recipe ever since.

After making this pie crust for a good 5 years now I did make one alteration…which can be added to any pie crust. This, is my SECRET ingredient that makes can i buy viagra at walmart not only the pie crust better, but it pulls the flavor can you buy viagra over the counter in canada of the whole pie together!

What’s the secret??? CINNAMON!!! Add a teaspoon of cinnamon to your pie crust and you will have the most awesome pie crust dough ever. viagra i cialis The cinnamon goes with almost any pie you will make for this time of the year. Pumpkin pie, apple pie, berry pie, pecan pie, etc. All of these either have cinnamon in the pie filling or cinnamon compliments the flavor nicely.
