Pie Shell

Ingredients

1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons cold water (approximately)

Preparation

1
Mix flour and salt thoroughly. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add a little water at a time, blending lightly. Dough should be just moist enough to cling together when pressed. Shape dough into ball. Roll out on a lightly floured surface or between two sheets of waxed paper. Place in pie pan. Trim. Flute edges. Add filling. For a baked pie shell, prick bottom and sides with fork. Bake at 450 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
