Another recipe from Mom, the ever-useful pie crust, that can be filled with fruit, sugar and cinnamon/allspice to make all kinds of pies/cobblers, or with omelette fixin's for a quiche, or spread flat and add some OJ in place of water and make a dessert "pizza crust" to top with marscarpone and berries/sliced fruit...
1.25 c flour
1/5 tsp salt
2/3 c Crisco shortening (or cold butter/margarine)
Cut in shortening with fork until forms coarse, mealy mixture - don't ovrdo this step, or the crust will be too crumbly.
.25 c flour mixed with
3.5 tbsp water
