In making pie crust, the less it is handled the flakier it will be; kneading or handling it makes it tough. Just work it up with your hands until all the flour is worked into dough after adding liquid. Cutting in the shortening or butter or lard with a pastry blender is a much more efficient way of getting the job done.
