  1. HEAT oven to 450°F. Coat baking sheet with no-stick cooking spray.

Baking Tip

Measure pastry ingredients carefully. Too much liquid makes dough soggy, too much flour makes dough tough, and too much shortening makes dough greasy and crumbly.

Baking Tip

Remove pastry from refrigerator 1 hour before rolling or shaping to avoid excess handling.
