 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      3/4  cup           shortening
      1/4  cup           boiling water
    1      tablespoon    milk
    2      cups          sifted flour
    1      teaspoon      salt
 
 Put shortening in medium bowl.  Add water and milk.  Break up shortening with
 4 prong fork.  Tilt bowl and beat with fork in quick, cross-the bowl strokes
 until mixure is smooth and thick like whipped cream and holds soft peaks when
 fork is lifted.  Sift flour and salt onto shortening.  With vigorous, round
 the bowl strokes, stir quickly, forming dough that clings together and clings
 to the bowl.  Pick up dough and work into a smooth, flat round, then divide in
 half and form two balls.  Roll out and cut out for one 2 crust pie.
