  5. Cut in shortening until pieces are the size of small peas.
  6. Mix together 4 tablespoons of the water and the lemon juice.
  7. Sprinkle 4 tablespoons of lemon water over the dry ingredients; mix lightly, adding just enough additional cold water to hold dough together.

  10. Roll out remaining pastry to about 1/8 inch thick.
  11. Cover pie with crust, trim, turn edge under and crimp.
