Pat-In-The-Pan-Pie-Crust-I hate making pie crust. I hate rolling it out and keeping it from sticking…and I hate trying to get it rolled even and trying to make it into a circle. I just hate all that. You just mix it up, pat it in the pie dish, and you’re all set. It’s a pie-crust miracle.
In a food processor pulse together flour, salt and sugar. Add butter and shortening. Pulse 8 to 10 times or until mixture resembles coarse crumbs and some of the butter is pea-size. (Alternately, combine in a bowl using a pastry blender or a fork.)
