Murphey's pie crust

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Flour
1 teaspoon Salt
⅔ cup Shortening
¼ cup Icy Cold Milk

Mix flour and salt. Add shortening and mix with 2 knives or a pastry blender until the mixture is the size of small peas. Add cold milk gradually until dough can be gathered into a ball. (all of milk may not be needed.) As soon as the dough holds together, stop handling.

Divide the dough into two balls and roll each one out from the center in

each direction. For two single prebaked pie crusts, fit each circle of pastry loosely into a pie pan. Build a rim and pinch with thumb and forefinger. Prick well with fork and bake in preheated 450 F oven for 10 to 12 mins or until lightly browned. For a double crust pie, line pie pan with one pastry circle, fill, and cover with the other circle of pastry. Pinch all around to close. Makes 1 double pie crust or 2 single shells.
