Confusion about butter in the crust

Why does the crust part of the recipe call for “1 cup butter, 1 stick”? One stick is only 1/2 cup, so I’m confused about which amount you are calling for.

It is confusing. Most of the pie and tart recipes that I've used have a ratio of approximately 2 cups of flour to 1 cup of butter, so I'd go with one cup (2 sticks).
