Ingredients:  
1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
3 Tbsp COLD water

Directions:
Directions:
Sift flour. Resift with salt. Work in shortening (I use a fork, but you could use a pastry blender) until the grain in the mixture is pea size. Stir in water - ONE tbsp at a time until the mixture holds together when you gather it into a ball. (It is important to make sure that it doesn't get too wet - I generally do the 2nd and 3rd tsp of water by hand). Roll it out (using flour so it doesn't stick to the rolling pin or the counter surface) and place in pie pan. (If you want a baked crust, bake it at 425 for 12 to 15 minutes).

Makes one 9-inch crust.
