2 2/3 c. sifted regular flour

1 t. salt

1 c. shortening

6 T. ice-cold water

Combine first 3 ingr. in large mixing bowl. Cut well with pastry cutter. Add ice-cold water. Cut with pastry cutter, thoroughly. *Always cut never stir. Dampen counter w/ wet cloth & lay saran wrap down. Sprinkle wrap with flour. Divide in 1/2. Shape into balls. Roll out on floured saran wrap, adding flour (sifted) as needed to keep from sticking. Carefully slide hand under Saran™ wrap. Invert pie plate over top of pie crust, center it, & flip, position it & peel saran wrap carefully off. Trim edges & shape as desired. (This is Daddy’s favorite pie crust w/ his favorite pie, pumpkin!)
