Basic Pastry Mix


1 1/3 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. shortening
3-4 tbsp. cold water

Mix flour and salt.  Cut in shortening with pastry blender or forks, until dough resembles coarse peas.  Add cold water 1 tbsp. at a time until flour is moistened.  Shape dough into ball.  On lightly floured board, roll out into circle.  For baked pastry shell, prick with a fork; bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
