Mix all ingredients in this order, be sure that the shortening is melted , it works better , the boiling water usually melts it fine. Mix all ingredients , let stand about 15 mins . you can prepare the filling if you want. Roll your pie crust on waxed paper one on top and bottom so the dough won't stick , now lift the wax paper off the top and place it in the pie dish , cut edges off and flute the crust edges .this makes a beautiful crust .With out the flour mess , you may even press it in with your hands . Very nice and soft dough to work with . Bake until light golden brown about 15 -20 min 350 degrees . Now if your going to make a soft pie you let the pie shell cool , prepare a instant pudding mix as directed on the box "Chocolate is our favorite , pour pudding in cold baked pie shell , add pudding top with cool whip topping and add a piece of a chocolate bar on top the whip topping. Yummy! Should make 2 pie shells or 1 fruit pie top and bottom!
