THE RECIPE (yields two crusts, or a top & bottom)
Plain and simple ingredients. Nice 'n' easy :)
Combine Flour, Salt, Butter, and Shortening into a food processor.
Pulse the combo for a second at a time until the consistency of lumpy grainy sand is acquired.
Add the Buttermilk into the "sand"
Pulse again for a few seconds at a time until a lump of dough is formed.
Dump that Lump onto a floured surface.
Flour your rolling pin and roll that lump out.
YET ANOTHER STEP:
Put that Lovely dough into your pie pan
I like to fold the excess edge dough back into the crust. Who doesn't love thick flaky crust?!
Pinch the edges pretty if you like, but I did not. I like to keep it Rustic. It's not that I'm lazy. It's rustic.
ONE MORE STEP IF YOU NEED TO:
Blind bake that crust in the oven if you are doing a chilly little pie whose filling does not require a bake. BUT DON"T FORGET TO FORK THE BOTTOM FIRST! or you'll get horrible yummy lumpy bubbles on the bottom. not attractive.
NOW, go make a filling and enjoy that pie!
