Step 1: Ingrediants Needed for crust, pie and meringue
cream of tartar
Step 2: Making of the crust
I used my mixer but you don't have to. Good old fashin hand mixing works just as well.
In mixer combine the ingrediants below. Using a spatula to scrap sides and makes sure it's all incorporated.
2/3 Cup Chilled shortening cut into slices ( I use Crisco butter flavour sticks)
2 Tablespoon Chilled butter cut into slices
2 Cups unbleached flour
pinch of salt ( i like to use coarse Kosher salt)
