I don't care what your grandma says, this is the best pie crust recipe ever. I made it the other day and it was absolutely delightful. Instead of cutting in the butter, I threw everything into a food processor and did it that way. Faster and easier. Just add the water a tablespoon at a time after processing the other ingredients first. Perfecto!!
I have made this crust for over 30 years now. The recipe was given to me by Ma Jorde who was an elderly woman who lived next door in North Dakota. I found it years later in a old 1800 c. Cookbook. It's been around for a very long time. It is amusing to see people claiming to have invented this recipe. It is the best pie crust because it doesn't break apart.
