CarrieAnne's Grammie's Pie Crust

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cups shortning
1/4 cup ICE water

Add shortning to flour and chop with a knife. Add the ice water, stir with a fork to form dough. Roll out thinly on a floured board. Roll it out twice for best results.

No one can make pie crust like gram. I have tried and tried but I just can't master it. Although I come close, must be her touch!

Extra hint from jeaniej:
Ice water is DEFINITELY a key. I've learned to BARELY have the dough together before I start rolling it out...that way I don't handle it so much! Also, if you can get wax paper to stick to the counter (try wetting the counter first, before putting down the wax paper), roll your dough on it...then, you can pick up the wax paper and flip the rolled out dough into the pan, without as much of a chance of it falling for me (SOMETIMES!) anyway...
