Below are two versions, one for a single crust and one for a double crust. This recipe works in both a regular 9-inch pie plate as well as a deep dish 9.5-inch pie plate. Be sure that the butter or shortening is very cold, in fact, I often freeze it and then grate it into the flour using a cheese grater....this helps to create a very flakey crust!
