Bakers, why is this dough bitter?

I made a pie crust an hour ago and the dough tastes bitter to me. The ingredients: Gold Medal all-purpose white flour, lard, water, egg, vinegar, salt. I tasted each ingredient just now (except the egg) and they all seem fine. Does anyone know where if an interaction among some ingredients might be causing bitterness? Or are my taste buds wrong? I'd appreciate any relevant advice.

How do you eat your pie

I've noticed that if I order pie at a restaurant, most times, they serve it crust side facing me instead of pointy side facing me. Do most people eat their pie crust first?

The Great Pumpkin

Looking at pumpkin receipes, they all seem to be mostly sugar and gunk with a little pumpkin thrown in to make sure it lives up to its name. Am I looking at the wrong receipes?
