Single Crust Pie Crust

1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup shortening (frozen is better)
3-4 TBS ice water

Sift together flour and salt. Cut in shortening to flour with pastry cutter until shortening is about pea size. Sprinkle a little water and toss. Continue to sprinkle water and toss until mixture is moistened. Form dough into a ball. Roll out of floured pastry cloth or pillowcase. Work from the center in all directions until your pie crust is about 12 inches. Carefully put your hand in middle and use cloth to fold over your hand. Carefully place in pie plate. Shape crust. Bake according to pie directions.
