2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
⅔ cup shortening
¼ cup cold water
Mix the flour and salt together and add the shortening. Use a pastry blender which provides large thin flakes of shortening, don’t mix too much! Add in the cold water while mixing lightly with a fork. Add more water if needed. Bring the mixture into a ball and knead 2 times. Divide in half and roll out to fit your pie pan.
Use a pastry blender! The more you blend.....the flakery
Refrigerate dough for 15 minutes before rolling out
Brush a mixture of 50-50 of egg yolk / milk on crust before baking. Makes a nice presentation.
