2 1/4
3/4
teaspoon salt
2/3
cup shortening
7
tablespoons cold water

Directions

  1. In a large bowl stir together flour and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until pieces are pea-size. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon cold water over part of the mixture; gently toss with a fork. Push moistened dough to side of bowl. Repeat, using 1 tablespoon cold water at a time, until all of the flour mixture is moistened (7 to 9 tablespoons cold water total). Form dough into a ball.

Using a sharp knife, cut slits in pastry to allow steam to escape, or if desired, use a small cookie cutter to cut shapes from pastry.
