How many times do I hear myself say, "where is that big orange binder?" or "has anyone seen that big orange binder?" The big orange binder has been accumulating recipes, kinspiration & original recipe cards tucked into plastic sleeves for my entire-almost-forty year existence. "The Big Orange Binder" is an organization attempt. It's a recipe with a story neatly packaged in a place where I'll always be able to find the ever-elusive . . . Big Orange Binder.

Perfect Pie Crust

Makes one-nine inch pie crust.

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup shortening
2-3 tbsp ice cold water

Comine flour and salt in a medium bowl.  Cut in shortening.  You want crumbles.  Sprinkle in water until mixture just holds together.  Shape into a ball.  Roll on floured surface and roll to 1/8 inch thickness.  Use in whatever recipe calls for crust.
