** Bumping this up....thought I had posted it before! (and on my birthday, too!!) Also, here's the recipe I use to make the crust (compliments of Emeril -- the best crust recipe I've found so far!!) ~Carrie

Basic Sweet Piecrust

1 ½ C plus 2 Tblsp all-purpose flour

1 Tblsp sugar

½ tsp salt

8 Tblsp (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into ¼-inch pieces and chilled

2 Tblsp vegetable shortening, chilled

3 Tblsp ice water, or as needed

1. Sift the flour, sugar and salt into a large bowl. Add the butter and shortening. Rub the fats between your fingertips and thumbs, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. One tablespoon at a time, work in enough ice water just until the dough comes together, being careful not to overmix.

2. Shape into a smooth ball of dough, flatten into a disk, and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 30mins, and up to two days.
