The crust is our house favorite. Flaky, buttery, easy to handle. The pie dough can be made a day or two ahead of time and kept in the fridge. Or freeze the dough and thaw out in the fridge the night before.
The directions are for a half moon shape (childhood memories and all) but one could always slap two circles together to make a round hand pie, or else cut the dough into squares and make triangles or square pies. Let your imagination go wild.
