7 apples, peeled, cored and sliced thin

To make crust: mix flour and salt. Cut in shortening. Sprinkle with water and toss with a fork until the dough balls up. Turn onto floured surface. With the side of your hand, make 3 "karate chops" in one direction; then 3 more at a right angle.
Sprinkle with flour; roll with rolling pin to fit 9 inch pie plate. Flute edges. Mix sugar and cinnamon with apples, pour into pie plate. Cut butter into flour and sugar. Sprinkle over apples. Pat with a spoon. Bake at 400 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
