Directions:
Mix flour and salt in bowl. Cut crisco into flour until pieces are small about the size of peas. Blend 1/4 cup of crisco and flour mixture and the water. Add to remaining crisco and flour mixture and mix with fork or fingers until dough holds together. Shape into a round flat mass with no breaks to the edges. Roll dough about 1/8 inch thick. For pastry shells, place rolled dough into pie plates. Trim edges with scissors 1/2 inch beyond the edge of the pie plate. Fold the edge under and flute with the fingers or fork. Prick small holes generously over the bottom and sides of the pastry. Bake in a hot oven 475 for 12 to 15 minutes or until brown.
