Late Christmas Eve, and I was short one pie crust (to lattice an apple pie). A complete novice at pie crusts, I tried this one--I needed simple, fast, and a short ingredient list. I did add one tablespoon of sugar, but otherwise followed it down to the last sentence. The key was definitely in my pastry cutter, and cutting the shortening in until the consistency was crumbly. It was well worth the extra effort. After that, I added two tablespoons of water at a time and mixed well with a fork after each two. I didn't need any extra water. I split the dough in two, wrapped each ball in saran wrap, and fridged them until I needed them. The dough wasn't sticky at all. It turned out so beautiful, I ended up ditching my store-bought dough and using this one for the whole pie instead of just the top. SUPER simple, took all of five minutes to get it mixed together. Thanks!
