      Yay!!! this was the first pie crust that I've made that has ever turned out (I've made a few...) I was a little worried about it being too moist, but it rolled out perfectly and was so easy to transfer to the pan. It turned out flaky and delicious.

      This was the easiest most delicious pie crust I have tried and succeeded to make, ever. I used half butter half shortening, and it worked like a dream.

      I love this pie crust and have made it so often that I know the recipe by heart! For easy measuring I always use 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup shortening. I also use just 4-5 tablespoons ice water ~ Only as much as it takes until the dough comes together. This recipe makes just the right amount of pastry which is especially easy to work with and turns out tender, flaky, and flavorful ~ Perfect!
