My grandmother's recipe. She had a spiral notebook with recipes cut from the newspaper or hand written in it. In her recipe book she had hand written "Very Good! Best pie crust I have found". She made the best pies!

You can also use the aluminum pie plates and make several up ahead of time and freeze them.
