Directions:
Preheat oven to 425F. Combine flour and salt in food processor with blades. Cut butter and shortening in pieces into flour. Pulse on and off till mixture looks like coarse meal. Add water a few tablespoons at a time, until dough just holds together. Form into 2 flat disks, wrap in wax paper and refrigerate at least 30 minutes. Roll on lightly flour surface, to 1/8-1/4 thick. Cut shapes. Cut smaller shape in center of half of shapes to make tops so filling is visible. Place Bottoms on ungreased cookie sheet. Place 1-2 Tbs. filling to within 1/4" of edges. Brush edges with water. Cover with top crust. Press together with fork along edges. Brush tops with egg mixture. Bake on center rack at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until browned. Remove to rack to cool.

*If you can't find pastry filling, there is a recipe for blueberry pastry filling. Pie filling is NOT as thick as pastry filling.
