I’m including this pie crust as more of a concept than as the actual recipe. If you have spent much time reading here, you’ll know that I try hard to avoid processed food as ingredients in my cooking. If I’m going to cook from scratch, I don’t see any reason to start with a cake mix.

While this recipe does use a store bought refrigerated crust, I see no reason why you can’t do this with any traditional flaky pie crust. I think it would be fabulous with apple pie.
