Flaky Butter Crust

This easy recipe makes three single crusts. The dough can be frozen. It can be made in the mixer or the food processor (I make it in the food processor). I found it in one of my cookbooks - CookWise by Shirley O. Corriher. and decided to give it a try since I needed three crusts for Thanksgiving pies. I was very impressed with how easy the dough was to work with, and how the crusts baked up. They were fairly flaky and buttery tasting, and held up well with both pumpkin and pecan pie fillings (without getting soggy). This is my go-to pie crust recipe from now on.
