Ingredients:  
For 2 Crusts:
(cut this recipe in half if you only need 1 crust)

2 cups flour
pinch of salt
10 1/3 tbsp. crisco
1/3 - 2/3 cup ice milk
extra flour for rolling dough

Directions:
Directions:
Place the milk in the freezer.
Place the flour in a large bowl, and add the salt. Mix. Add the crisco, and work in with a fork till the mixture resembles small peas. Add the ice milk slowly until you can gather the dough into a ball. Do not over work once you have added the milk.
The dough should hold together nicely, but not be wet.
Flour a board or work space and roll the dough into a circle a bit larger than your pie dish. Place in pan and bake as directed.
For baked crust: Bake @ 425 for 10 - 12 minutes or till golden brown. Prick entire crust with fork before baking. This is not necessary if you will be working with an unbaked crust. (Ex: Apple pie)

***The secret to a really great crust is 2 things:
1. A really cold liquid
2. Don't over work the dough. You can work the crisco in for as long as it takes---but once you add the liquid---you MUST work quickly and handle the dough as little as possible. Once you get the hang of it--it's a piece of um---pie, I guess!!
