Found in Mrs. Rowe's Little Book of Southern Pies. So simple, so tasty and so easy on the budget compared to buying pre-made! Perfect for Grasshopper Pie or cheesecake pie. This crust can be made a day ahead and stored in the refirgerator. Please allow at least 1/2 hour of cooling time before filling.
