Used this to make Grandma Oples Apple Pie today and it turned out great! I'm not an expert when it comes to pie dough but this was such an easy and forgiving pie dough to work with! The only changes I made was to add the egg to the flour mixture first then add the ice cold water 1 tbs at a time until the dough formed, used a little shy of 1/2 cup. Also I cut the shortening up and froze it for a bit to make it nice and cold, much easier to work into the flour this way. One mistake I think I did was not chilling it long enough. I was in a bit of a rush and only chilled it for 15 minutes but I think I would have had an easier time rolling it out if I didn't rush it. I saw other reviewers saying that this made too much for 1 pie but I thought it was good for a pie with a lattice top, although Im not an expert roller so I did have quite a bit of scraps but I didn't mind that. None the less it turned out great, such a flaky tender pie that still held up an apple pie, will definitely be my new go to crust!
