This is the best pie crust ever, and it's very easy. It never fails to be flaky and light.
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup shortening
1/2 cup very cold water
Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the shortening until mixtire looks like crumbs. Stir in water until the mixure forms a ball. Divide the dough in half, and shape into 2 balls. Put this in a zip lock bag, and refrigeate for for at least 3 hours, or overnight. Roll out the dough on a floured surface. Use for your favorite pie recipe.
