When rolling out the pastry, mend any cracks by wetting your fingers and pressing the dough together.

You can also use this as a Double-Crust Pie by using the following:

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup shortening
6 to 7 tablespoons cold water

Use same directions as this one.

You can easily prepare a homemade pie anytime if you keep pastry dough or shells in the freezer. Shape dough into a flattened ball; wrap in plastic wrap and heavy-duty foil. Freeze for several months. Allow dough or shells to thaw before using.
