Source: I have had this tear out and keep in your kitchen page forever. I believe it is from Argo cornstarch. These recipes are so basic and simple to follow and I have actually worn this page out. I put it into a sheet protector today so I can continue to use these wonderful pie recipes.

My family loves pie best of any dessert. I use to make my own pie crust, but today I watch for pie crust on sale at the grocery store. Enjoy!
