Using the egg roll wrappers results in the top crust being kind of crisp, but good and the bottom crust is very simillar to a regular pie crust.
You can also buy pie crusts at the store. At my store, they're about $2.30 for two 9" squares of pie crust. Each one has enough dough to make two pies, so two of the squares that come in each box will make four pies.
The egg roll wrappers are much less cost per/pie. I think a package of them has 30 wrappers and costs about $2. Enough for 15 pies.
The 9" pie crusts cost about 60 cents per pie and the egg roll wrappers cost about 15 cents per/pie.
