Preparation / Directions:
Combine 1/4 cup flour and ice water, stirring with a whisk until well blended; set aside. Combine remaining 3/4 cup flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl; cut in shortening with a pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add ice water mixture; blend with a fork until dry ingredients are moistened.
Gently press mixture into a 4 inch wide circle on heavy-duty plastic wrap; cover with additional wrap. Roll dough, still covered, into an 11 inch circle; chill 10 minutes or until wrap can be removed easily.
Preheat oven to 400 oF.
Remove 1 sheet of wrap. Fit dough into a 9 inch pie plate coated with cooking spray; remove top sheet of wrap. Fold edges under; flute. Prick bottom and sides of dough with a fork. Bake at 400 oF for 15 minutes; cool on a wire rack.
