Single Pie Crust

Given to me by my mom which was given to her by my Grandma Priest
This is seriously the flakiest, best tasting pie crust I have ever had.

1 1/2 cups flour
2/3 cup shortening
3 Tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon salt

Cut flour into shortening. (Easiest way is to use a potato masher). Then add salt and water. Knead slightly with flour, and roll out. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown (about 10-15 minutes).

Tip: Don't forget to poke holes in the bottom of crust with a fork before putting in oven so that it does not bubble on you.
