this was my first attempt (at least that i remember) at making a pie crust. i really liked it, but it reminded me more of the wonton chips you get at a chinese restaurant then pie crust. i liked it though. there are quite a bit of steps, so have fun watching them!
make the pie dough:
start by getting a bowl of ice water ready
using 2 knives: cut butter and shortening into flour mixture just until form large, pea size crumbs
