Aunt Maxine Poling's fool-proof recipe for Pie Crust

Cin Straw's Kitchen Recipe

By Cin Straw's Kitchen NanatomyGrands

My aunt Maxine gave me this recipe back in the 60's (she'd been using it for her pie's for more years than that).
She passed away a few years ago, I just want to give her the credit for this.

I am posting a variety of my pies, my crust is made with Aunt Maxine's pie-dough recipe.

Note from CinStraw:
Depending on what kind of pie it is I sometimes sprinkle cinnamon-sugar (or Splenda) over the crust before baking.
Or sometimes I will sprinkle sugr crystals over the crust befor baking.
