Shirley's Pie Crust
How to Make Shirley's Pie Crust
- Mix together the flour and salt. Remove 1/3 cup of the flour/salt mixture and set aside in a little bowl. Mix the cold water with the mixture in the little bowl.
- Cut the shortening into the remaining flour/salt mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. You could use a pastry cutter, but I always just use my hands.
- Stir the flour/water mixture from the small bowl into the mixture in the bigger bowl. Knead until you've got a nice, pliant dough. Separate into two balls, wrap tightly in plastic wrap, and refrigerate ~3o minutes before rolling out for pie crusts. (Makes two  pie crusts)
