Saw messages about pie crust and wanted to share this one. I've been making
this one since I was about 10 and it's always come out great.
Use lard instead of the shortening.
Perfect Pie Crust
4 cups unsifted flour
1 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsps. salt
1 3/4 cups solid shortening
1 Tbsp. vinegar
1 large egg
1/2 cup water
Put first 3 ingredients in large bowl and mix well with a fork. Add
shortening and mix with fork until ingredients are crumbly. In a small bowl
beat with a fork the egg, vinegar and water. Combine the two mixtures and
form into 5 portions. Wrap each in plastic bag and chill at least 1/2 hour.
Roll as with any crust.
