Pie Crust

Single or Double for 9 inch pie plates

1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
water (cold)

2 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
3/4 shortening
water (cold)

Combine flour and salt. Cut in shortening until resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle with cold water 1 tbls at a time. Toss with fork until forms ball. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface.

Tip: Fold your rolled out pieces of dough hot dog style, then hamburger style (like a paper napkin is folded). Then you can move the dough around, place it into your pie plate and unfold without it tearing.
