Directions:
Preheat oven to 400F
Stir together the flour, salt, sugar and use a fork or pastry cutter to cut in the butter and shortening into the crust dough.
Add enough ice water to make the dough form a ball.
Flour a cutting board and roll out the dough to 1/4″ thickness. Use your favorite cookie cutter to cut into an even number of pie crust “cookies.”

Place the cut pie crust cookies onto a lined cookie sheet and brush the top of each with the melted butter.
