Add the shortening and cut into the flour with a fork or a pastry cutter until the flour mixture is crumbly. Gradually add the iced milk 1 teaspoon at a time. Continue to add the milk and mix until the flour mixture forms a ball. Transfer the flour mixture onto a sheet of plastic wrap, refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. This is enough to make 2 (8-inch) pie crust. When you are ready to prepare, divide dough into 2 portions. Roll out the pie crust between wax paper.
