A flaky, fork-tender crust is easy if you follow these simple steps.
- Start with cold ingredients, like ice water, butter and shortening
- Add spoonfuls of water, just until the dough holds together
- Be careful not to overmix; overmixing toughens your dough
- Chill you dough for at least 30 minutes before rolling it out
- To prevent sticking, roll your dough out on a floured surface, and flour your rolling pin too.
