Pie Crust

I got this recipe from my Dad. {print recipe}

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup shortening, generous cup (at times I will use butter)

1 egg

4 Tablespoons cold water

Mix the flour, salt, and shortening until crumbly.  Shake the egg and water together.  Add to the flour mixture and mix together.  This will usually make a two crust pie, with a little extra.
