But if you want to make your crust from scratch:
The secret is to keep the butter and/or shortening from melting. If the fat melts, the crust bakes hard as a rock. Folks chill their rolling pin and often ingredients before starting.
Use a pastry knife to cut the fat into the flour until you have pea-sized pebbles, add ice water, and mix it only until you have a dough ball.
Roll the dough to thin ¼-inch thick and cut circles for each pie.
This how to use your mix:
Put the mix and water into the bowl of your stand-type mixer. With the paddle attachment, mix the dough for about a minute—just long enough to get a dough ball. Roll it out and cut circles.
