Single Crust Pie
- 1 1/4 cup flour
- 1/3 cup shortening
- 4-5 Tbsp cold water (you want the water to be cold so it doesn't melt the shortening)
- 2 cups flour
- 2/3 cup shortening
- 6-7 Tbsp cold water
- Put flour in a bowl and add shortening. Using a pastry blender (or a the tines of a fork) cut the shortening into the flour until the pieces are about the size of peas.
- Add your water, 1 Tbsp at a time, by pouring each Tbsp on different sections of the dough.
