Ingredients

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening, chilled
3 tablespoons ice water


Whisk the flour and salt together in a medium size bowl. With a pastry blender, cut in the cold shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Drizzle 2 to 3 tablespoons ice water over flour. Toss mixture with a fork to moisten, adding more water a few drops at a time until the dough comes together.


Gently gather dough particles together into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for at least 30 minutes before rolling.


Roll out dough, and put in a pie plate. Fill with desired filling and bake.
