Never Fail Pie Crust

Believe me I have used many
of the frozen pie shell's you can
purchase at the store.
Who hasn't? They are fast,
easy, and dependable...right?
However I also know that some
are better tasting than others.
So why not make your own
pie crust? They aren't as hard
as you may think. PLUS they
taste like they are homemade!
I am pretty sure you have all 
the ingredients in your pantry too.

No Fail Pie Crust
*this will make 2 shells
3 C. Flour
1 1/2 C. Shortening
1 tsp. Salt
1 Egg~ beaten
5 TBSP Ice Water
1 TBSP Vinegar

Mix flour and salt together.
Cut in shortening with a pastry blender.
In small bowl beat together the 
egg, water and vinegar.
Pour all wet ingredients into
the dry all at once, blend together
until all liquid is absorbed.
Divide into 2 crust.
This is a easy to work with dough,
that can be re-rolled easily.
*This is a freezer friendly crust.
just roll out into desired size and place in
foil pan or you can also roll out dough
between 2 sheets of freezer paper, 
place in plastic freezer bag.
Easy does it,

I'm sure it's tasty. Just what kind of shortening do you use...margarine? Crisco?

Plain old Crisco! (NOT the Butter Flavor)

I've been using this recipe over 30 years since I was in high school found it in a Home economics textbook. I shared it with my mother and she used it from then on. Do they even teach Home Ec any more? It's a really good one.

I am pinning this because I don't want to lose it. I am a terrible pie crust maker and this one says "no fail". I will be safe with this one. Thanks Lark!
