Note

  1. If you don't have a pastry blender, you can also cut cold butter into a flour mixture by using two table knives in a criss-cross manner. Continue until the mixture has achieved the texture of a coarse meal.
  2. Prepared unbaked pie shells are available in your grocer's freezer. Simply thaw according to package directions before use.
  3. You can also use a ready-made refrigerated pie crust for this recipe. Thaw and unroll according to package directions and crimp the edges as desired.
