2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup shortening
1/3 cup cold butter, cut into pieces
5 tablespoons ice cold water

Fill a small bowl with water and ice cubes.

Sift flour with salt. Cut the butter into the flour with a pastry blender or fork until blended and there are pea size pieces.

Add 3 tablespoons of ice water and mix gently. Continue to add water a little at a time until the dough just sticks together and forms a ball.

Divide into 2 parts - one slightly larger than the other for the bottom crust and form into 2 disc shapes. Roll each out into circles that are about 1/8 inch thick. Use as little flour as possible - call roll out with wax paper on each side.

To use later, cover the discs with plastic wrap and refrigerate

About this Recipe:
Consider making your own pie crust. It is easier than you think and makes the pie better. Keeping the dough cold and not working it too long, make the crust light and flaky.
