I tried all kinds of crust recipes before a friend gave me this one years ago. None of the others that I tried had enough shortening or water and were impossible to roll out and have a good result. My mother gave up trying to make pies because of this. Try this recipe, you will have good results just as it is written. It is bland, that is what you want for a pie, the filling should be the star. You can try putting it in the frig. after mixing it, but I have always had better results mixing, rolling, and putting it in the pan. You can put it in the frig for a while after it is in the pan. I have a pastry cloth that works very well for keeping the crust from sticking. I've had mine for years, I suppose they still make them, and they would be easy to make yourself. If you don't have a pastry cloth or wooden counter to roll it out on I would use wax paper, I think it works better than plastic wrap. Sprinkle some water on you counter and put the wax paper on that, the water keeps it from slipping.
