This recipe is from Ladies Home Journal, September 2008. Although the magazine instructions use a food processor, I did it by hand just as easily and have included my directions as well as the original instructions. It is the best pie crust I have tried. It has worked for me everytime and has become by staple pie crust. No more frozen or store bought pie crust for me. Although the recipe calls for butter, I have made it with margarine with the same success.
