2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup Crisco
4 tablespoons cold water
1. Combine first three ingredients. Cut the shortening into the flour making very fine pieces.
2. Spirnkle in water one tablespoon at a time until the flour is all moistened.
3. Gather the dough into a ball using your hands. Cut the dough ball in half since theis recipe makes 2 crusts.
4. Flatten the dough on a floured surface and roll out a round shape.
Hint: If you moisten your counter-top, you can place wax paper down, flour it lightly, roll out the dough, and thenlift it up and gently place the crust over the pie pan.
Yield: two eight-inch pie crusts
Hint: Do not handle the dough too much. (Just the opposite of bread). Over-handling and re-forming of dough causes a tough, not flaky pie crust.
