I used butter instead of shortening and it was just what I needed for my pot pie! Add a little sweet and it would be perfect for a dessert pie too! Edited to add: I made this using shortening instead of butter last night and I won't do that again. It made it difficult to use/roll out. I'll make it again but I'll use butter.

it is a very good crust.believe it or not. It comes out flaky and good. I used it for a pumpkin pie.

This crust was way too crumbly. After refrigerating the dough, I had to let it warm up to even try to roll it out. I'm wondering why the recipe says to refrigerate at all, since you have to let it warm up. I won't be using this recipe again.
