****DO NOT make this crust******* The filling is superb, and deserves 5 stars. But the crust is just awful, and deserves not only a '1' star, but negative -5 stars, if that were possible. It is impossible to work with and makes what is usually (for me at least) a joy to bake pies a very, very frustrating experience. Because I had no more crisco or even butter, and not enough time before my 4th of July bbq to make another crust, I ended up actually mashing the darn dough that crumbled to the touch directly INTO the pie pan, and doing a crumble on top. It in turn completely crumbled when served. The cherry filling was delicious. But it wasn't 'Pie', as it had no form whatsoever. I think the submitter made a mistake in writing the recipe or something, because there is no way the pie in that picture could have been made with a workable crust. So frustrating.
