Butter because it tastes better to me

I’ve tried all of these and settled on all butter because it tastes the best.

@Carliej01: Actually, I wouldn’t use a mixer.  🙁  The more you handle/mix your dough the tougher and less flaky your crust will be.   I use one cup of flour per crust, mix a large tablespoon (table size-not measuring size) of shortening.  Then I thoroughly mix that before adding cold water, until it is moist.  Once the crumbs of mixed flour and shortening are moist I very gently form a ball of dough, flour my surface and my rolling pin and roll it out while moving the crust and sprinkling the surface and the rolling pin with flour as much as necessary to keep it from sticking.  🙂  Good luck and have fun!  Merry Christmas!

My Mother-In-Law uses apple schnapps instead of water in her apple pie crust…yummy, but more difficult to handle when rolling out.  I typically use butter-flavored shortening and water in mine.
