This crust is incredibly easy AND delicious. Very tender and flavorful. It's my favorite pastry for everyday cooking and baking; you don't have to cut the fat into the flour, and you don't have to worry about toughening the dough by over-working it and activating the gluten too much (because stirring the flour into the creamed butter mixture so thoroughly coats each particle of flour). I have tried this for both sweet (pecan tassies, chess pie) and savory dishes (chicken pot pie), and it's TERRIFIC!
