Method Of Preparation

In a bowl add wheat flour, salt and powdered sugar. Add in the cold butter and knead with fingers till the butter combines well with the flour.Then add in needed cold milk to form hard dough. (Don’t add more milk) Refrigerate the dough for 1 hour.Then take out the dough and roll on a floured surface and cut to the size of pie pan. 

Place it on the pan and just do pricks with the fork. With the balance cut flour, roll it again and cut to 4 stripes as per the length of your pie pan. Keep aside.Bake the pie crust in a preheated oven to about 5-8 minutes, Take it out and add he custard filling to it and arrange the stripes over it to form a lattice pattern and bake to about 30-35 minutes or till done.

Cool on a wire rack.

Note: This was my first try of pie, so I just made in my normal baking pan instead of using pie pan.
