Single Pie Crust

1 cup Sifted Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1/3 cup Solid Shortening
1 tbs Solid Shortening
2-1/2 tbs Ice Water

*** Add salt to sifted flour. Resift. Cut in shortening with pastry blender or knives. Cut in remaining 1 tbs of shortening. Dough should form little balls. Sprinkle with ice water. Blend water into dough. Form a ball. Roll dough (on a slightly floured surface) to 11 inch circle (for a 9 inch crust).

*** NOTE: Sometimes rolling dough between wax paper helps to prevent too much flour being added to dough.
