Never Fail Pie Crust

from Adell H.

2 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1 cup shortening or butter flavored shortening
a little less than 1/2 cup cold water

1. Mix flour, salt and shortening with a pastry cutter to the size of corn meal.

2. Add cold water and stir with fork until it holds together. Take it in your hands and gently mold into a ball.

3. Roll out on a slightly floured surface until big enough to fit a 9 or 10 inch pie pan. Cut off extra dough.

This recipe makes enough for 1-double 9 or 10 inch pie crust.

If baking single crust put in pie pan and bake at 400℉ for about 12 minutes or until lightly browned.

If baking a double crust pie follow directions for pie.
