Pie Crust

This is by far my favorite pie crust.  It is flaky and tender and just plain yummy.  Just beware that it kind of wants to be the star of your pie! :)

Pie Crust
Printer-Friendly Version

3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups shortening
1 egg
5 Tbs cold water
1 tsp vinegar

Cut shortening into flour and salt mixture.  Beat egg, water, and vinegar together.  Blend with flour mixture just until moist.

Will be flakier if frozen.

Yield: 2 double pie crusts (if you are better at rolling out pie dough than I am)
