Directions

  1. Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Cut shortening into flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add orange juice a tablespoon at a time, tossing with a fork, until the flour mixture is moistened. When you squeeze a handful of the moistened pastry mixture, it should form a ball. Divide the dough in half and shape into balls. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate before rolling.

Excellent! If a pie crust is still flaky the next day, then I consider it a great pie crust. I did use lard since family members are allergic to soy based shortenings. I chilled the dough for 10 minutes. I sprinkled a small amount of flour on waxed paper, then rolled the dough between two pieces of waxed paper. Easy Peasy!
