Barb's Favorite Never Fail Pie Crust

This has been in my recipe box for years. It is the only pie crust recipe that I trust to never fail and the only one I use in anything I bake that requires pie crust dough. DO NOT use any milk that is richer than whole, i.e. 1/2 & 1/2 or cream, it will cause the crust to slide down the sides of the pan during baking as it will be tooooooo short.
