For crust, prepare and roll out pastry. Line a 9-inch pie plate. Trim pastry to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate. Fold under edge; flute. Prick the bottom and sides of the crust with tines of a fork. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Cool pie on a wire rack.

In a medium saucepan, bring the milk and 3/4 cup sugar just to a boil. Remove the saucepan from the heat.

Pastry For Single-Crust Pie
Pastry For Single-Crust Pie:

1.
In a large bowl, stir together flour and salt. Cut in shortening until pieces are size of small peas. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of cold water; toss with a fork. Push to side. Repeat moistening dough, using 1 tablespoon cold water at a time, until all the dough is moistened (4 to 5 tablespoons cold water total). Form dough into a ball. On a lightly floured surface, use your hands to slightly flatten dough. Roll dough from center to edge into a circle about 12 inches in diameter. To transfer pastry, wrap it around the rolling pin. Unroll pastry into a 9-inch pie plate. Ease pastry into pie plate, being careful not to stretch pastry. Trim pastry to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate. Fold under extra pastry. Crimp edge high as desired.
