1Crust: In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt; cut in the shortening until mixture resembles course crumbs.

3On a floured surface, roll 2/3 of the dough out to an 18x14" rectangle. Carefully place onto the bottom and up the sides of a 13x9x2" glass baking dish.
4Filling: Combine berries, sugar and flour. Pour into crust.
5Use the remaining crust to make lattice strips, place over filling. Brush pastry with half and half.
