ol' Fashioned Flaky Pie Crust

Megan Todd


Another one pulled from my recipe box vault! My recipe card for this one is so worn. I only use this recipe for my pies. It's my gammies. Its got a wonderful flaky texture that just melts in your mouth.

Ingredients may seem a lil different from today's recipes.... but it's been a favorite of my family's for generations.
