1 tsp. salt
1 c. shortening
1/2 c. cold water
Sift flour, measure, and sift with salt.
Cut in shortening until mixture is coarse and granular.
Work water in lightly with a spatula until little balls of dough just hang together in one large ball. Divide into four pieces and roll out to 1/8 inch thick.
This was copied exactly as written. If using a pie plate larger than 8”, you will probably only be able to get 3 pie crusts from this recipe. You also might want to chill the balls of dough before trying to roll out.
