Flaky Pastry

1 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 c. shortening
3 Tbsp. ice water

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add ice water and stir lightly. (Dough will be just moist enough to cling together when pressed into a ball.) Turn dough out on a lightly floured board or cloth. Roll to 1/4 thickness, trim to 1/2 larger than casserole.
For use as a top crust for the Chicken Pot Pie recipe. Double the recipe for the top and bottom crust.
