My mom's favorite pie cookbook is the old Farm Journal's "Complete Pie Cookbook" from 1965… and her copy is well-used and loved, full of clippings and hand-written notes. This recipe is based on the one from there, with modifications to her taste. It works really well for all sorts of pies, especially her Quiche Lorraine (see my other recipes) and pumpkin. Simple and flaky! Makes one 9-inch pie shell with a little left over… Mom takes the leftover and makes it into little snack crackers. :) My sister claims she doesn't like oil crust, but she never knows the difference when Mom uses them in her pies.
