2 cups flour
Scant cup shortening

Measure flour into large mixing bowl. Remove four tablespoons flour and put in small mixing bowl or glass. Add three tablespoons of water to removed flour and mix into smooth paste with spoon. Add enough water to just cover paste. Pour most of that water back off and mix. Paste should slide off spoon. Cut shortening into flour in large bowl until well blended. Pour paste over shortening mixture and mix.

Divide dough in half and form into balls. Place one on floured board. Flatten with hands into round disk. Roll with floured rolling pin, keeping round shape and turning and flipping often. Keep rolling surfaces well floured. When you are ready to put crust in pie plate, drape loosely over rolling pin and lift into plate.

Repeat above steps with remaining dough. Makes two single crusts or a top and bottom for two-crust pie.
