Tips for decorative pie crusts. Who doesn't love pie! Many pies are made with fruit, and some fruits such as strawberries and apples are loaded with pesticides and even antibiotics. Great place to go organic. Try organic flour and shortening also adding Salba Chia seeds to help control blood sugar. We just have to remember pie is a treat that has a lot of calories in each bite. When you do add it into your day, give up something else, and you won't have to lose later.
In a food processor pulse together flour, salt and sugar. Add butter and shortening. Pulse 8 to 10 times or until mixture resembles coarse crumbs and some of the butter is pea-size. (Alternately, combine in a bowl using a pastry blender or a fork.)
