Granny's Pie Crust
This makes a very flaky crust and is courtesy from my husband's grandmother. This recipe is as written by her, and if followed makes a remarkable crust.

1 c flour aprox. 1/4 t salt
3 heaping Tablespoons of Crisco 3 T cold water

"Sift flour and salt in bowl. Cut in Crisco with pastry blender until fine. Sprinkle 1 Tablespoon of water at a time and keep cutting in flour and Crisco until you use 3 Tablespoons of water. Work this together, but don't work very much or it will be hard."
