Alright, ive made this recipe at least 15 times in the past month (preparing for a 4th of July baking contest -- I won!) after trying various ratios of these ingredients the perfect combination I found is to keep everything the same EXCEPT leave out 1 tbsp of shortening (use butter flavored shortening) and as others have suggested chill everything, bowl, spoons, pastry fork, etc.
Using the full amt of shortening makes this dough too fragile to work with, and leaving out two tbsp makes it gross like grocery store crust, but leaving out just that one tbsp makes this crust flaky and delicious and easy to work with -- I even perfected a latice top!
