Pie Crust Recipe

This is for Beverly B from Tulsa OK. This is the only pie crust recipe I've used since 1955, it makes a flaky crust and is from an old Betty Furness Westinghouse Cook Book.

Two Crust Pie
2 cup all-purpose flour, sifted before measuring
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. salt
3/4 cup hydrogenated shortening (Crisco)

In bowl combine flour and salt. Take out 1/3 cup of the flour and mix with the water to form a paste. Cut shortening into remaining flour until pieces are size of small peas. Add flour paste to shortening and flour mixture. Mix with fork until dough comes together and can be shaped into a ball. Divide in half, roll out both crusts about 1/8" thick.

For One Pie Pie use 1-1/2 cup flour, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 c. shortening. Take out 1/4 c. flour and blend with 3 Tbsp. water.
