Make Refrigerator Pie Crust Taste Better

I love the convenience of refrigerated pie crusts, but I must say, I do not like the flavor of the crust when I am making a dessert pie (as opposed to a quiche).


So, before I put my pie in the oven I pour about 1 tablespoon of milk in a cup and add a dash of vanilla extract (You only need about an 1/8 tsp.). I brush that on the crust and lightly sprinkle with sugar. What a difference it makes! I recently used almond extract when I made a cherry pie and it was delicious.

I'll have to try that! I cook mainly from scratch but I REALLY don't like making pie crusts and my husband swears he can tell the difference. I'll see if this will fool/pacify him.
