Pie crust question

Ana617 | Aug 18, 2017 08:10 AM

I love the all butter crusts but the butter needs to be very cold. When its cold it's too hard to work with. It won't roll out, resulting in a tough crust. I watch videos and no one ever has this issue. I tried leaving chunkier butter bits but it's too dry to hold together (I maxed out the water ratio). Is there a secret butter I don't know about or should I go back to shortening. What am I doing wrong?
