One layer of my crust is plenty. :)

Mmmmm, three layers of crust and two slimmer layers of fruit... that's just about the proper ratio of fruit to filling for my taste. Thanks for sharing this!

I have made this pie crust from PW's site twice now. It makes three crusts. The first time I made it, I made two pies and froze the third. It was in the freezer for several months before I used it and it was great. Just recently made another batch but sent two pies to my DMIL (who said they were very good) and froze the third. I know I added 1/2 cup more flour when using White Lily. It is very forgiving.

Also, if you will sprinkle a little flour inside the ziplock when you are ready to roll it out, you can roll it inside the bag. Then slit the two sides, and fold back the top of the bag. Center your pie pan upside down over the dough, flip them over together and ease into the pan.

I know it is rather late, but I saw the word piecrust and tried that link and could not open it. Would you happen to have the recipe?

I had a problem with posting(after I  typed my message, it kept saying that I hadn't typed a message). Of course, I became annoyed. I'm not sure what happen after that.

What a neat idea... I will have to try it! By the way, this is the pretty much the recipe I use for my pie dough. Chilling the shortening is key. Also, I use ice water as well. Those two things contribute to a great pastry. Tender and flaky.

There is something horribly decadent about eating three slices of pie at once. I thought from the picture that the pie was made in layers like the pies mentioned in sailing ship novels, but its actually three slices piled on top of one another.
Why would anyone do this? It means you are deprived of two scoops of ice cream.

I like your thinking!

I've seen pictures of multi-crust pies and read about them, but I've never tried to make one. DH would probably like one, but he's not all that fond of apple -- cherry would be something else, however.

Donnie doesn't like cherries. I asked him what kinds of cherries he had tried? "Maraschino". No wonder, lol.

He must have a decent palate after all. LOL

I knew a guy who claimed not to like asparagus. It turned out all he'd had was canned asparagus soup. Aaack!

The sheer amount of foods he claimed not to like that he really had never tried boggles the mind, lol.
