Flaky Pie Crust

(2-9 pastries)
3/4 C shortening
2 C sifted flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 to 1/2 cup ice water
Combine flour, salt, and shortening. Mix with pastry cutter until flour and shortening are crumbly (about the size of small peas). Pour enough ice-water into flour mixture to make a stiff dough. Divide in half and turn each portion onto a well floured board. Sprinkle dough liberally with flour and make into a ball-surface of dough should not be sticky. Using rolling pin, roll out into desired shape. Use for a hearty chicken or beef pot-pie, or an all purpose baking shell for any of your favorite pies, etc.
