Do you make your own pie crust or do you buy the pre-made ones? Or do you just buy the whole pie and make your life easier? I used to buy the pre-made pie crusts, but it is really so easy to make my own that I make them now.

It's easier for me to make my own. It just takes a few minutes, faster than going to the store. And home made tastes a lot better, I think.

It just depends on how much time I have. Sometimes I make my own and other times I buy the pre-made crusts.

I think I would prefer to make it my self, but using the one that ready to bake. I do sometimes bake cake and cookies. It is for my children.

I make them. I have all of the ingredients anyway, so it's easier just to make it when I feel like making a pie, rather than having to go to the store or add it to the grocery list. I tend to bake on whims, so I usually just use what I have on hand.

For me its easier to buy them already made and i dont have to clean up the mess of flour on the floor,so i like that,hehe.Its hard to make the homemade pie crusts because my daughter loves to help and i dont really mind but the after mess is double the job.I buy tenderflake pie crusts,they are $2.39 a box of 2,the price is great haha.:)

My mother used to make her own pie crusts. I think I did it once. I prefer to have the ready-made pie shells, however I can't buy them too far in advance otherwise they get kicked around in the freezer and then break. The only time I buy the whole pie is when they are on special at M&Ms. I have two of their apple pies in my freezer right now as they were on sale for 2 for $5. Can't find the opportunity to serve them though. LOL! I bought a lemon meringue pie from the grocery store once and it taste awful. I actually threw it out. I decided to buy an M&M's lemon meringue pie just to see the difference - much better. But I prefer to make my own using a frozen pie crust.

Its half and half for me. If I do have the time I'll try a homemade crust. If not, then I'm not opposed to getting pre-made.
