The recipe for a single pie crust calls for 1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 cup Crisco all-vegetable shortening and 3 to 6 tablespoons ice-cold water. Blend flour and salt together in a large bowl. Using a pastry blender or fork, cut the shortening into the flour. Add just enough water, stirring with a fork, until the dough holds together. Shape the dough into a ball, and flatten into a disk 1 1/2 inches thick. Roll the dough outward from the center on a lightly floured surface. Transfer to the pie dish.
