This pie crust recipe is for one pie crust only. One night my mom and me where making pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving and she had me write down the recipe for the pie crust so that I could always have it. I love this pie crust recipe. I have used it for the crust for a lemon and blueberry tart. Yum Yum!!!
