I am a novice. It was easy. I have been baking pies for 4 years, using store bought pie crusts. I entered a pie contest at church, so I had to bake my own crust this time. It was easy! I woke up at 3:30 a.m. and followed directions. I used cold shortening and I used iced to get the water cold. I rolled it into a ball and wrapped it in plastic wrap before putting in the freezer for 30 minutes. I'm not sure if the freezer was a good idea or not, but the crust came out perfect! I surprised myself. It was very flaky and reminded me of my great grandmother's crust. I don't have a mixer and neither did my great grandma, I used my left hand to mix ingrediants.
