How to make it

  • Get Ready - the key it to keep shortening and hand cold
  • Put the shortening in the freezer for about 20 minutes
  • I fill a medium bowl with ice and and water for putting my hands in.
  • Make Crust
  • In a large bowl, mix flour and salt
  • Cut in shorten in tablespoon sized lumps until the mixture looks like a course meal
  • Sprinkle on the ice water and mix with a fork
  • (I run a bit warm so I soak my hands in the bowl of ice water until is hurts bit)
  • Knead the dough until it just comes together
  • Seperate the dough into two halves
  • Wrap in plastic and keep in refridgerator for 30 minutes - will keep for about 3 days.

    Did you mean 1/2 cup of ice water? My mom's recipe is just like this one, except she uses slightly less water and adds 1/2 tsp sugar. It makes an excellent crust, I'll be a witness.
