This is my Grandmothers recipe. It makes enough dough for several pie crust. She would roll up individual balls of dough and freeze it to use later. All you do is defrost and you are ready to make pie's. She also used this as the crust for her fried pies, oh, they were sooo good!Love you Grandmother....
