This recipe makes two (2) pie crusts, and freezes VERY well. This recipe can be made by hand, or using a food processor. (I make mine by hand since I do not own one). Please make sure not to overprocess the ingredients, as this will result in a very tough crust, not tender and flaky as it should be! The key to a flaky crust is to have all the ingredients COLD when you start. I like to put everything (flour and all) in the freezer for up to 30 minutes before I start. You may also use 1 cup of vegetable shortning, or 1 cup of non-dairy butter, instead of 1/2 cup of each. I prefer using a mix of the two!
