This recipe is from "Home Cooking with Dave's Mom" pg. 150. David's Mom says: "The fat content in a fruit pie comes from the pie crust, and there's just no way to avoid it. I don't think you can make a rust without the fat. I discovered this recipe several years ago in 'Thou Shalt Season With.' It's one of the best pie crusts I've ever come across."
