My daughter Emily has requested that I teach her how to make an apple pie. But she happens to be in Australia, so I am using this method.

Ingredients: For the dough, start with 1 cup shortening, 4 cups flour, 1 or 2 teaspoons of salt, and a little extra butter for flakiness. This will give you plenty if you are making a nine-inch pie.

#2. Use a pastry blender to cut the shortening, butter, salt and flour together. Mix as little as possible, because mixing makes the crust tough.

#3 Press down repeatedly into the mixture with the blender until the dough is forming pea-sized lumps.

#4 This is about what your dough should look like when you are done cutting.

Now it is time to add water. Some people like to use milk. I always end up using more water than the three tablespoons they suggest in pie crust recipes; I use practically half a cup before the dough feels right. I put ice into my water to keep it very cold, and then I add water gradually with my left hand while mixing with my right.
