Turkey Pot Pie Crust (Pastry Topper)


1 ¼ c Flour
¼ tsp Salt
1/3 c Shortening
5 Tbs Cold Water


In a medium bowl stir together flour and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until dough pieces are pea size. Sprinkle 1 tbs of cold water over part of the mixture; gently toss with a fork. Push moistened dough to side of bowl. Sprinkle an additional 3 to 4 tbs of cold water over remaining flour mixture, 1 tbs at a time, tossing with a fork until all dough is moistened. Form into a ball. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 13×9 inch rectangle. Using a sharp knife, cut slits into pastry to allow steam to escape. To easily transfer the crust to your pie, roll it over the rolling pin and then unroll it over the pie.
