Do you use a pastry blender,2 knives or a fork?I only use a fork to blend the shortening in the flour,it works good for me.Plus i always forget to buy a pastry blender,since years.

Hi peanutjar! Love your avatar. Such a cute little guy. Anyway, to answer your question. I used to use knives and forks. I did buy a pastry blender, but I always forget to use it! Sometimes, I would just use my hands. It wouldn't take as long, and I got the same results. now, I use my food processor. It makes the work that used to take such a long time, only seconds to complete! I love makingmy pie crusts this way.
