Easy GF Pie Crust

1 bag (3 1/2 cups)  Pamela's GF Bread Mix (there is no yeast in this recipe)
8 tbsp. unsalted butter, chilled
8 tbsp. shortening, chilled
7-8 tbsp. ice cold water

yield: 2 x 9" pie crusts or 1 double for apple pie crust

In a bowl cut chilled button and shortening into Pamela's GF Bread Mix with two knives or a pastry knife until small pea sized pieces form.  Slowly add water until dough comes together, not sticky.  Add 1 tsp. additional water if dough is too dry.  Do not over handle the dough.  Roll out half the dough between two pieces of parchment paper or plastic wrap.  Peel off top paper and invert into a lightly greased pie dish.  Peel off second sheet and fix crust edge.  Bake on lower rack of oven on bottom rack for about 35-40 minutes unfilled at 350 degrees, or bake with pie fillings at the same directions as above.  Pie crust can be kept frozen and thawed for later use. 

Enjoy! xoxo Julie
