Yes, you read that right. Vodka. But don’t worry, this won’t get Aunt Millie drunk (you’ll need something else for that), she’ll never even know it’s there. What it will do is give you a beautiful, flaky crust for your favorite pie and make you a hero to your friends and family. The folks at Cook’s Illustrated figured out this genius new ingredient a few years ago. The alcohol vaporizes in the oven, allowing you to use more liquid which makes it easier to roll out the crust without overworking it. It’s a beautiful thing.
