Basic Flaky Pie Crust

In this video, you’ll see how to make a very easy pie crust from scratch. It’s super simple and delicious. Make sure your shortening (or butter, if you prefer) is chilled, and work with a pastry cutter to keep the dough cold as you work it. This crust works well for savory or sweet fillings. Get the recipe for Stephanie’s Basic Flaky Pie Crust.

Although it is easier to learn when there is a step by step dialogue, this site is named "Recipes in Motion". I kind of like it.

You guys show putting the ingredients in the bowl, anybody can do that, try rolling the crust out that's where people have the problem, NOT PUTTING IT IN THE BOWL...
