Flour the blade of a chopping knife or a small empty baking powder can and chop the shortening into the flour until the mixture looks like meal; or rub the shortening into the flour with the tips of the fingers. Use knife to mix the dough, adding, the cold water gradually and use only enough water to make a paste that is not crumbly, but sticks together without adhering to the knife or bowl. Take up all the particles of chough or flour on the sides of the bowl and with aid of knife turn on to a board lightly dredged with flour, pat with rolling pin and roll out. Use no more flour than is absolutely necessary. Roll in 2 circular pieces
