From the plains of Kansas to my Seattle kitchen, this has proven to be a praise-worthy pie crust for generations.

Ingredients

Directions

Sift together flour and salt.
Cut in shortening with a pastry cutter until it's in pea-sized bits
Cut in butter with pastry cutter until the mixture is a consistent mealy texture

* it is important to mix the shortening in first to get the right over-all consistency. Don't do what I used to do and impatiently thrown the shortening and butter in at the same time. Trust me.

For one pie, measure 2 cups of the dry mix and 3 Tbsp COLD water. Mix with a fork and form into a ball. Divide in half and roll each half separately on a generously floured surface until 1/4 inch thick.
