Bran Pie Crust Shells
1/3 cup bran
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup shortening
6 tablespoons cold water
Crush bran into fine crumbs; mix with flour and salt.
Cut in 1/3 cup of the shortening to the consistency of cornmeal.
Cut in remaining shortening to the consistency of peas.
Sprinkle cold water over top of mixture, a little at a time, mixing with a fork until dough is just moist enough to hold together.
Turn onto a sheet of wax paper and shape the dough into a ball.
Roll out to fit two 8-inch or 9-inch pie plates.
