Pie Crust

Another recipe from Mom: the ever-useful pie crust, that can be filled with fruit, sugar and cinnamon/allspice to make all kinds of pies/cobblers, or with omelette fixin's for a quiche, or spread flat and add some OJ in place of water and make a dessert "pizza crust" to top with marscarpone and berries/sliced fruit...

After many years, I've begun adapting it. The Kitchn has a great alternative recipe that I have incorporated.

Basic Recipe

This makes dough for three 9" crusts

4 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
