followed other reviewers' advice about using 1/2 butter/1/2 shortening. Made for a potluck using frozen mixed berries - at first I thought the filling tasted too much like a Pop-Tart but everyone loved them and I've made it for several potlucks since then.
edited to add: several batches later, my favorite recipe tweaks: in addition to substituting butter for the shortening, add about a tsp. of lemon juice to the berries. I like to heat the berry/sugar/cornstarch mixture on the stove until it gets a little syrupy before pouring it onto the crumbly dough layer. BTW super-easy way to prep the dough is to use a food processor - pulse until the ingredients are mixed but still crumbly - don't worry, even though it looks sorta powdery, it *does* bake into a nice shortbread-ish base for the berries :-).
