2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup shortening
4 to 5 tablespoons water

Instructions

Put crust in a 9-inch pie pan and pour filling into crust then put top crust on. Brush top of crust with 1 teaspoon milk, then sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon sugar on top. Make a slit to let out steam. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, then 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown.

Crust: Mix flour and salt; mix with shortening with pastry blender until size of peas. Sprinkle with water until moist. Roll out to fit a 9-inch pie pan. Makes top and bottom crust.
