6 PASTRY FOR DOUBLE CRUST PIE : In medium bowl, sift together flour and salt. Add shortening; cut in with pastry blender or fork until the pieces are the size of small peas.
7 Add cold water by teaspoonfuls, toss with a fork until all the flour is barely dampened. Turn mixture into a square piece of waxed paper or pastry cloth.
8 Press the mixture until a complete ball is formed. Divide in half for bottom and top crusts. Wrap crust in waxed paper and chill ½ hour for easier handling.
