  • Cut chilled shortening into flour until particles are about the size of a pea.
  • Add just enough water, a tablespoon at a time, to form a dough which will clean the bowl.
  • Divide into 2 balls of dough.
  • Roll dough on floured board, fold and refold, and roll again.
  • Continue until dough is smooth.
  • Handle quickly but gently.
  • This crust is good for pre-bake recipes as well as filled pies.
  • (The main thing to remember-use chilled shortening and ice water.).
