This crust has never let me down no matter what the temp. or humidity in my kitchen. Keeps 3 weeks in frig so it's great to have around the holidys or in the summer when fresh fruit is available. I'm much more likely to throw a pie together if I know all I have to do for a crust is roll it out. Not much more work than a store bought crust but there's no comparison in the quality. Got this recipe from a dear friend's 94 year old mother. Her mother taught her to make crust this way when she was a girl so the recipe's been around a long time, although I'm sure it was made with lard back then and used immediately. This is one of my most prized recipes. Cook time is chill time.
