    1. BLEND flour and salt in large bowl. Cut shortening into flour mixture using pastry blender or fork. Stir in just enough water with fork until dough holds together.
    2. SHAPE dough into a ball for single pie crust. Divide dough in two for double crust. Flatten ball(s) into 1/2-inch thick round disk(s).
    3. ROLL dough (larger ball of dough for double crust pie) from center outward into a circle 2-inches wider than pie plate on lightly floured surface for the bottom crust. Transfer dough to pie plate.
