Recipe by ShortChef2009

This is a single pie crust recipe for one 9 inch pie crust from Betty Crocker The key is rolling the crust between the wax paper so as to not dry it out by adding flour. We use the butter-flavored shortening. That allows for the flakiness of the crust and the yummy flavor of butter. Also, when baking the pie, I suggest covering the crust with aluminum foil until 10 minutes before the pie is done. That helps keep the crust from burning.
