Pie Dough

5oz all purpose flour

5oz pastry flour

4oz shortening

3.5oz cold water

a pinch of salt

Sift the flours and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Pinch in the shortening with your finger tips until you get pea sized crumbly balls (see the photo). Add 2/3 of the water (I added the whole thing all at once and it was fine). Work the dough just enough to make a ball. Wrap the ball up and cool it in the fridge. When ready, dust the working surface with flour and roll out the pastry dough to the desired thickness with a rolling pin.
