Hi I added way too much butter to my pie dough and can't start over what should I do?

The recipe called for 13 tablespoons butter and then 1/2 cup shortening and I wanted to do all butter which would make it 21 tablespoons. I went on autopilot and added two full cups of butter so 32 tablespoons in all rather than the 21 tablespoons. Should I just add more flour?

Yes, I think the only way to fix this is to add enough ingredients (flour, etc) for another half recipe (to reflect that 32 tbsp fat is about 1.5x the original). Then shape and/or freeze the extra dough.
