From Barefoot Contessa Family Style cookbook, 2002. I have watched Ina Garten make this on her cooking show. She takes the mystery out of making pie crust and gives easy to follow instructions. First, the butter, shortening, and water must all be very cold. Second, let the dough sit in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before rolling (bakers call this "relaxing" the dough). Finally, don't stretch the dough when you're placing it into the pan.
