This is the recipe my grandmother used and passed down. She had a cafe back during the depression and was famed for her pies.

Serves:

Makes two pie crusts

Prep:

15 Min

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

3 c
flour
1 tsp
salt
1 1/4 c
crisco
1
egg
1 Tbsp
vinegar
5 Tbsp
ice water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Sift flour and salt together and cut in shortening. Add egg, vinegar, and ice water - mix well.
2
Pour onto floured surface and knead until smooth. Divide in half and roll out each half. Will make a single two-crust pie or two single crust pies.
3
If crust is to be baked before the filling is added, here's a little trick. Prick the pie crust then line the bottom and sides with a piece of aluminum foil and pour dried beans to cover the bottom - about an inch deep. Your pie crust will bake without puckering.
