I hate making pie crust cause they never turn out. After watching on how to make a pie crust video on this site, I sucked it up and went for it. I decided to make a recipe & a 1/2 so I can have some for the top. I used unsalted butter instead of shortening. Mixed the cold cut butter with the flour & salt. Slowly added the ice water with a teaspoon till the dough stuck together by hand. Used about 5-6 teaspoons of water. Divided the dough and wrapped them in plastic and refridgerated them for about 1 hour. Took them out and rolled the bottom pie crust on a silpath so I didn't need to add extra flour. Placed the crust in the pie pan and molded it. Rolled the second dough and used cookie cutters for the top decorations. Refridgerated both crust for 30 minutes then added my fresh blackberry filling. After it was done and cooled, my husband, who loves pie crust more than the pie, gave me a big thumbs up. This will be my staple crust, when I have time to make it. Thanks!
