When we were kids and stayed with my grandmother we would have these little gems for a late afternoon snack. My grandpa wanted his dinner around 7:30 and we didn't last that long without a substantial snack.
Combine flour, salt and shortening til they form pea-sized crumbs. Sprinkle water over the mixture, a little at a time, stirring gently til it forms a ball.
Set aside and let rest 10 minutes. Divide into 6 pieces and roll into (8 inch) circles.
Bake one hour or til golden brown.
Hand pies freeze well. If you freeze prior to baking, when you remove from the freezer bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. If you bake them and then freeze, remove from the freezer, let thaw a little bit and then bake for 20-25 minutes just to heat.
