A month or so back, [livejournal.com profile] tshuma picked up a copy of Cooks' Illustrated that included a somewhat unorthodox recipe for a "fool proof" pie crust utilizing vodka. I finally got around to trying it in an apple pie today.

Making the crust (last weekend) took some effort as I kept failing at halving the recipe in my head. Once I got that sorted out the consistency looked right, and the crust rolled out very easily. This weekend I added a bunch of Granny Smith and Braeburn apples to make the full pie. While the apples were sadly overdone (but still very tasty!) the crust turned out just about perfectly. It was nicely light and crumbly.

I'm definitely going to be using this recipe again in the future.
