 Categories: Pies, Desserts
      Yield: 6 servings
  1 3/4 c  Unsifted all-purpose flour
    2/3 c  Vegetable shortening
      1 c  Sugar
      1 x  Dash salt
    1/2 t  Salt
    1/3 c  Cold water
    1/4 c  All-purpose flour
      4 c  Washed fresh blackberries
  Sift together flour and salt in a mixing bowl.Cut in shortening with a
  pastry blender until mixture resembles large coarse crumbs. Sprinkle
  water over flour mixture,using a fork to stir it in gently to make it
  gather into a ball (the less water the better - just enough to hold
  it together).Turn out onto a lightly floured board and shape with
  your hands into two balls,one slightly larger than the other.Chill
  dough for 1 hour,then roll out large ball to fit the bottom of a 9 or
  10" pie dish.Now,mix sugar and all-purpose flour in a separate
  bowl,then add a dash of salt and stir in berries.Pour mixture into
  the empty pie shell,then roll out remaining ball of dough to make top
  crust.Crimp and trim edges,then slash the top crust in several
  places.Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes or
  until golden brown.Makes 1 - 10" pie.
