Prepare pie crust by mixing the flour and salt. Cut shortening into the flour (will resemble cornmeal); add cold water 1 tablespoon at a time. Mix dough and repeat until the dough is moist. Split the dough into 2 equal halves.
With lightly floured hands, shape the dough into a ball. On a lightly floured board roll dough out to about 1/8 inch thickness. With a sharp knife, cut dough 1 1/2 inch larger than the upside-down 8 to 9 inch pie pan. Gently roll the dough around the rolling pin and transfer onto the pie pan. Unroll, easing the dough into the bottom of the pie pan.
Roll the second crust as you did the first. This time, cut the dough into 1/2 inch wide strips. Pour Cherry filling into the pie pan. Once the filling has been poured into the pie pan, you will weave the strips onto the top of the pie to create a lattice effect.
