    1. Yes the batch can make 5 separate crusts. This is super handy for holidays or family gatherings.

  1. Just thought I'd let you know that there are a couple of grammatical errors. "Flower" was put in twice instead of "flour". And then... "ingredients are moils." Not sure what "moils" was supposed to be. I'm guessing "mixed". ??? 🙂
