Directions:
Mix together the flour and salt. Cut in crisco to size of peas. Sprinkle in a little water at a time while mixing with a fork. Add enough water to hold dough together when pressed. Divide dough in half. On floured surface, roll out bottom crust one inch larger than the 8" or 9" pie plate you are using. Ease crust into pie plate. Roll out top crust. Trim crust. For a one-crust pie shell, bake at 425 for 15 minutes.

*This is my "go-to" pastry I use for everything.
