Pie Crust

You will need:3 1/4 cups flour,1 teaspoon salt,1 1/3 cups of shortening and 4 to 5 tablespoons if ice water.

Combine the flour and salt together in a bowl.Add the shortening and use your hands or use a pastry blender until the mixture looks like crumbs.Add the water slowly by adding one tablespoon at a time and working it in with your hands once you get a smooth ball stop adding water.Once you get a smooth ball of dough wrap it in cling wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.When ready for the dough lightly dust the service with flour,cut the dough in two and roll each crust out about 1/8 inch thick.Makes 9 inch pan crust.

      It is really good Kathryn the chicken stays nice and moist and you can not beat homemade crust! You should try it with cider.
