It's not you, it's the crust

I LOVE to make pies, but I've decided that my pie making skills are really only mediocre and my crust making skills are the only thing that saves it. This recipe is not too flaky, or dry, and you always wish there was more of it!

2 pie crust:

2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup crisco butter shortening
1 tsp salt
1 egg
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/4 cup cold water

Beat egg, add vinegar & water. Mix (with pastry cutter) flour, salt, and shortening separately (will be crumbly). Add all together and continue mixing with a pastry cutter (will get thick). Work with hands a little bit and mold into a ball. Divide dough in half, roll out onto floured surface and place in a 9" pie dish.

You can either make two pies, or one with the crust on top and on bottom.


Hint: make sure your working surface is cool.

Mmmmm....sounds yummy! My mom doesn't think she can make a good crust, she'll have to try your recipe. By the way, you are "seriously so blessed" to have such a good recipe! Ha, ha! ; )
