    AmyZoe's Note:

    My Mom made this growing up with both sweet and savory pies. I still make this crust today because I don't have to roll anything out or try to make the butter pea-sized. She uses whole-wheat flour or sometimes half white and half wheat while I generally will use whole-wheat flour when making crust for pot pie and white flour when making pie crust. I have tried doubling this recipe when making a 2-crust pie, but I find it works better to make the first crust right in the pie plate and the second pie crust in a bowl. The second pie crust does get rolled out, but this dough is not as picky as crusts made with butter or shortening. Try it when you're in a pinch for a pie crust. You'll be surprised with the ease and simplicity of the recipe. Serving size is approximate.
