I linked to above is a standby recipe for me. But,
which I was very happy about!

I supposed you could say I've taken the original recipe and simplified it...yet, even so, making this pie is still a detailed task, with many steps. Yet, so worth it! In the recipe, as written, you are instructed to freeze the flour mixture, butter and cream cheese ahead of time. I didn't have the time to do all that, so I skipped it. I would be interested in seeing if taking the time to freeze everything produced a better end product...but, I'll have to save that for another day. I thought the crust came out fantastic, so I'm not sure I would change a thing.
