Never Fail Pie Crust

Recipe by Chef NancyCarol

This recipe is one of my Mom's from many years ago. I don't know where she got it, but she swore by it and so do I. Very flaky (or short as my Dad used to say)

This recipe is foolproof...I have even substituted non hydrogenated shortening for regular and still comes out perfect. Thankyou for posting it!
