4 Cups flour
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 Tablespoon vinegar
1 Large egg
1 3/4 Cup shortening (Not butter or lard)
1/2 Cup water
Directions and Story: Stir together flour, sugar, and salt. Cut in shortening. Beat egg, vinegar, and water until foamy. Add to flour mixture and stir until mixed. Divide dough into five portions. Wrap in plastic wrap and foil and freeze. If used immediately, chill for 1 hour. Scraps may be refrozen and used later. Crust will not get tough.
We used this recipe often it was always predictable that it would be a good crust. It is handy to make this large enough recipe to have some frozen-to make another pie at a later date.
