The crust was very difficult to keep together so I ended up having to form it in the pie plate. I also added an extra tablespoon of water. Over all it was very good and worked very well for my pumpkin pie!

This was also my mother's recipe passed down from her grandmother. She used oil when she ran out of lard and never went back! It's a tried and true recipe.
