I'm a novice...why ICE water?

Yikes, that dough was so overworked before rolling it out, guaranteeing that it will be tough. Want tender, flaky pastry crust? Never twist the pastry blender, cut in the shortening in two parts (first half until the mixture is crumbly and second half until it's forming balls the size of peas), and use a fork to toss the dough when adding the ice (not cold) water, which is added one tablespoon at a time over a small section until the dough clings together and can form a ball. And where's the ice water and pastry brush to help the top and bottom crusts stick together? Everything else was good, and it's nice to have a visual as to how to put the lattice strips on, but seriously, don't mix it like this or it will not be tender.
