    9 inch ...

    1. 1
      Combine flour and salt in mixing bowl.
    2. 2
      Cut shortening into flour with pastry blender or 2 knives. Do not overmix; these are sufficently blended when particals are the size of peas.
    3. 3
      Add water gradually, sprinkling 1 tablespoon at a time evenly over mixture. Toss lightly with a fork until all particles of flour have been dampened. Use only enough water to hold pastry together when it is pressed between the fingers. It should not feel wet.
    4. 4
      Roll dough into a round ball, handling as little as possible.
    5. 5
      Roll out on a lightly floured board into a circle 1/8 inch thick and 1 inch larger than the diameter of the top of the pie pan.
    6. 6
      Place circle into pie pan, gently pressing dough to fit to the bottom & sides.
    7. 7
      Trim edges with scissors or a sharp knife letting 1/2 inch extend over rim.
    8. 8
      Turn edge under and flute with fingers to make a standing rim.
    9. 9
      Prick shell all over with a fork to prevent air bubbles.
    10. 10
      If desired, bake at 450 for 12-15 mins or until a golden brown. (Not necessary for the Shoo Fly Pie and most other baked pies.).
