Pillsbury Refrigerated Rolled Pie Crust

I've seen this product recommended but I don't know if you can buy it anywhere in Toronto. If anyone has found it, please let me know which store. I usually make pastry for mince tarts at Christmas, but I'm not going to have time this year. I know I can just buy the frozen tart shells, but I heard this product was better than frozen. Plus I can manage to cut out the little Christmas tree toppers for my tarts if it's rolled pastry. No lids with the frozen unless I prise a few of the shells out of their tins, which I would rather not have to do.

  1. Hi there!

    I bought it at Dominion on Port Union Road in is definitely a good and super easy substitute for a homemade crust!

      Thanks for the info. I don't usually shop Dominion so I wasn't able to find it. There's a Dominion at Don Mills and Lawrence, so I'll give that a try.

    2. I bought a pkg for my Thanksgiving pies -- not nearly as good as Nancy's frozen -- crust came out hard, brittle, not the least bit tender or flaky even though the edge was covered part of the time as specified.

          Just noticed you're in Toronto -- I can get Nancy's at any supermarket here in the SF BayArea. I think the Pillsbury w/be okay for your cut-outs though.

      1. Hi.. I've only found one store so far that carries this pie crust, in Markham - The Garden Basket on Markham Road.
        Making homemade pastry for pies has always made me think that 'easy as pie' is an oxymoron.. this Philsbury product is fantastic, and so easy to use. I've tried to find a store in central Scarborough - any suggestions?

          Hi. Sorry for the late response, but I've been working day and night. Did you see the post about Port Union Road? I didn't think that was in Scarborough, but that might be closer for you than Markham Rd. I haven't even started my baking yet, so I haven't gone out to the Dominion at Don Mills and Lawrence to see if they have it. If I find it there I'll let you know. But tarts are low down on my priorities right now. Merry Christmas!

            I bought this yesterday at the Super Walmart in Stouffville (on Hwy 48, just North of the town of Markham) Havn't tried it yet though.

          2. They have at at the Danforth and Vic Park Dominion. But "hydrogenated lard"???
