Directions:
Mix all the dry ingredients. Then add the shortening and crumb it. If it appears too dry, add more tenderflake (by the spoonful) until its nice. You don't want this sticky. When its all mixed, then add the water. If its too sticky to roll out, just add a little more flour.

Roll out and place in pie shell. This can be frozen and used at a later date.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
You want your pie crust nice and soft. The key to a nice pie crust is not to work it too much. (its not like a bread dough).

When I am making pies, I prepare the dough first and keep it in a zip locked bag while I am preparing the fruit.
