      Perfect! and makes the perfect amount too! I used margarine instead of shortening and it came out buttery and flaky. Just right! Thank you!

      The BEST! Makes the best crust I have ever tasted. Actually I replace real butter for the shortening to cut out the trans-fats. Also, use extremely cold water. Big glass of ice filled with water. Then measure out the water in measuring spoons. This is good every single time. Consistently!
