    BecR's Note:

    This pastry crust is so tender and flaky, and best of all SO EASY! I can't say enough good things about this pastry recipe, so you simply MUST TRY it---you will NEVER go back!! A treasured family recipe from my dear father---he never gave the recipe to anyone (except family), so shhh don't tell!!! Waaay better than any other I've ever tried. My Dad made 'Libby's Famous Pumpkin Pie' (2 pumpkin pies every Thanksgiving!) and his extra-special 'Apple Pie In A Bag' Dad's Delicious Apple Pie In-A-Bag with this crust, and I use it for ALL of my pie baking!!! I hope you enjoy! (note: makes a single 8 or 9-inch crust).
