    Mix flour and salt in medium bowl. Cut in shortening, using pastry cutter, until particles are the size of small peas. Sprinkle with cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with fork or spoon until all flour is moistened and pastry almost leaves side of bowl (1 to 2 teaspoons more water can be added if necessary).

    Gather pastry into a ball. Shape into flattened round on lightly floured surface.

  • 3

    Roll pastry, using floured rolling pin, into circle 2 inches larger than upside-down 9-inch glass pie plate, or 3 inches larger than 10- or 11-inch tart pan.

  • 4

    Fold pastry into fourths; place in pie plate. Unfold and ease into plate, pressing firmly against bottom and side and being careful not to stretch pastry, which will cause it to shrink when baked.

    Trim overhanging edge of pastry 1 inch from rim of pie plate. Fold and roll pastry under, even with plate; flute as desired. Continue with directions in pie recipe.
