Love this crust! It was really easy to make and it turned out delicious. Definitely use the solid shortening sticks, and I didn't have time to put it in the fridge so I used it at room temp. I used a fork to push it into the flour mixture and that worked great. Mashed it with the fork until it looked crumbly. I measured out my cold water and put an ice cube in it to keep it cold, and then added the water a tablespoon at a time, mixing with my fork until the mixture was a little crumbly looking still but I could push it easily together with my fingers. I didnt use all of the water, maybe 2/3 to 3/4 of it. Then I formed the dough together with my hands and rolled it out. I couldn't find a rolling pin so I used a pint glass rubbed with a little flour. I buttered my baking dish a just a little before I laid the dough, which I probably didn't need to do with all of the shortening in the dough, so it probably just added a little more flavor. Then I made a second one to use as a top crust (for Grandma Oples apple pie recipe on this site) and I put the top crust in the fridge while I made the rest of the pie. This crust turned out so great I am going to use it for all my pies!
