DIRECTIONS

  • Put the shortening in a medium bowl and pour the boiling water over it.
  • Whisk for about 1 minute,until smooth and creamy and about the consistency of sour cream.
  • Add the flour and salt and stir with a fork until you have a ragged looking dough that barely holds together.
  • Scrape onto a floured surface and push and pat into a round disk 3-4 inches across.
  • Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about an hour.(This is a soft dough and is easier to roll out when it is chilled).
  • Sprinkle your work surface and the top of the dough, generously with flour, and roll out the dough until it is about 1/8 inch thick and about 12 inches across.
  • Transfer to a 9 inch pie pan, then trim and flute the edges.
  • The pie shell is now ready to be filled or baked first and then filled, depending on the recipe.
