Yield: 2 crusts
Cut shortening into flour and salt until particles are size of small peas. Sprinkle in water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with fork until all flour is moistened and pastry almost cleans side of bowl (1 to 2 teaspoons water can be added if necessary). Gather pastry into a ball and divide evenly. Shape one ball into flattened round on lightly floured cloth-covered board. Roll pastry 2-inches larger than inverted pie plate with floured rolling pin. Fold pastry into fourths; place in pie plate. Unfold and ease into plate, pressing firmly against bottom and side. Trim overhanging edge of pastry 1-inch from rim of plate. Fold and roll pastry under, even with plate; flute. Fill. Roll other round of pastry. Fold into fourths and place over top of filling. Cut slits so steam can escape.
