Is there a problem with making pie crust in larger batches or is it better to make it in smaller batches? I need to make three pies.. every recipe is for enough dough for one.. not sure if that means just the bottom.. or bottom and top? lol .. anyway need two just bottoms and one bottom and top..

    Buy roll out crusts they are easy and delicious! You should do them seperately otherwise you will have trouble dividing the dough into exact amounts. Most recipes make a top & bottom crust.

    I've never done it in bulk. I don't see why it would hurt it though.

    I want to try making it from scratch

      This is great, easy be sure to use shortning(crisco) and don't overowrk the crust. It can be double.This is the one I use and grandmom did also.

    Original recipe makes 1 single crust

    Directions

    1. Place flour in a medium bowl. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add water and mix just until dough comes together. Allow to rest in refrigerator before rolling out.

     Alton Brown has the easiest, tastiest most convenient recipe for crusts. In the video I have watched he has made the recipe for two-three pies at a time.
