Mix together salt and flour in a medium size bowl.
Add shortening and blend it into the dry mixture with a fork or pastry cutter until it has a crumbly texture.
Gradually add the ice water a tablespoon at a time until the dough is formed. You can use a food processor but do not overmix.
Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and cut in half. Roll each into a ball and then shape into a disc.
Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for at least 30 minutes.
Place discs on the floured surface and roll out to about ⅛ of an inch thick, rolling from the center outward.
Roll crust over the rolling pin and use it to transfer the crust to the pie plate.
Dock the crust by poking it randomly across the bottom.
Shape the crust into the pie plate and style the edges as you like.
To bake the crust as is, place in a preheated 400°F oven for 20 minutes.
