In this video, Sarah shows you how a food processor and plastic wrap make quick work of mixing and shaping pie dough that you can freeze ahead for all your holiday desserts.

    i subscribe to MS living, i was just curious,(no im not an activist) just wondering why she publishes so many recipes using baby lamb , i am considering cancelling my subscription .....i enjoy some of the other recipes, but get tired of seeing so much LAMB....... i am not a total vegaterian, but i have never eaten lamb and never will.....just the thought of killing a baby to eat, just isnt right, not to offend anyone that does, some people will eat pretty much anything... just hate there are so many LAMB recipes...... i understand she raises her own animals to eat does she kill them herself ?????.... long time subscriber....... :(

    I own a food processor, but never use it for making pie crusts or biscuits. A pastry cutter is fast, easy, and easy to clean up. Butter may have a taste advantage, but shortening produces a crust with a flakier texture. (It's a matter of personal preference.)

    Sarah says in Pie Crust video 1 TABLESPOON sugar; written recipe says 1 teaspoon. This is Thanksgiving and it WILL make a difference. Oops!

    I agree with CATTYE. I eat meat but i would never hurt an animal/bug. I AM NOT AN ACTIVIST EITHER.

    I agree with John's post....butter dough is not necessarily the flakiest. I prefer shortening to butter any day! Less cholestorol also. I just got a food processor and will try making dough but with shortening. My dough comes out very very flaky! I tried both and prefer shortening. I am lactose intolerent too lol!
