Butter Flaky Pie Crust
I doubled this recipe and successfully made two pumpkin pies with it. I used organic unbleached spelt flour, and it worked well.
It can be difficult to make a good pie crust, but one thing I've found helpful is the use of a pie crust maker, which can be found on amazon, or in specialty cookware stores. They're cheap, they prevent flour from getting everywhere, and they ensure that your crust is the perfect size and shape!
I love that this recipe uses butter, as I prefer to bake with something natural rather than with hydrogenated oil (shorterning). And the results were too delicious to make me change my mind!
