Yesterday prepared pie in this recipe and it was nice, all home liked it, but I think that had to be better .. Knead the dough when I get very hard and I had a problem with flattening. I think that next time you will need to add a little more water than 150 ml. Had to pull and it took me a long time until I make thin wafers, which tore more than they should. But otherwise I think the recipe is super and will prepare many pies in it until I make perfect. I really want to learn to make good pies and hope this to happen to me in the future. Thanks for the recipe
