This one will work. The recipe and video come from Hands That Cook and she takes you through the entire process of making flaky pie crust. You can watch her make the dough and she is very plain on what your dough should look like when adding fluids to get the right consistency. She also stresses that everything needs to be cold and kept cold as much as possible to achieve the flakiness that you associate with a fantastic pie. In this video she uses lard but she says you can use shortening if you prefer.
