Food Fare: Canadian RecipesPastry Pie Crust

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Cut in the butter and shortening using a pastry knife until the largest pieces of the mixture are about the size of a pea. Sprinkle water over the mixture, one tablespoon at a time. Use a fork to gently distribute the water until a soft dough forms. Gather the dough into a ball, and then separate into two equal-sized balls. Refrigerate for one hour. Place one of the balls on a lightly floured surface. Press the ball with the palm of hand to flatten slightly. With a floured rolling pin, roll from center to edges until crust is 1/8" thick. Repeat process with the other ball. Makes dough for a 9" double crust.
