- In a large bowl, stir together the cake flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, white sugar, and brown sugar. Cut in the shortening by pinching between your fingers or using a pastry blender, until the mixture has lumps no larger than peas. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, water, vanilla, and almond extract.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, and mix until the dough comes together. Divide the dough into halves, pat into a ball, and flatten slightly. Wrap each one in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight before rolling out to make a crust.

This was good but I might use less shortening next time. I have never seen a recipe with 1/8 cup of baking powder before and I used only 1/8 tsp. It seemed to work. I also wonder if the 'cup'...
used this recipe with the sour cream Apple pie to rave reviews! It was delicious altho agree with previous reviewer I added alot more flour...perhaps the msmts can be reviewed?
By proportions of other crusts I have made, the flour should total 3 cups.
