Mimi’s Really Easy Flakey Pastry

I've used this recipe for many many years - it is so easy, always so good, and easy to roll out and handle. It is wonderful to have the extra rounds in the freezer for whenever I make pies or quiche.
It is similar to another one I was reading this morning, but different enough for me to submit this version!

Prep:

10 Min

Ingredients

4 c
flour
1 Tbsp
sugar
2 tsp
salt
1 3/4 c
shortening
1
egg, beaten
1 Tbsp
vinegar
1/2 c
water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
With a fork, or in the Cuisinart with knife blade, mix:
4 c flour
1 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp salt
1 ¾ c shortening

In a measuring cup in the microwave, or in a small pan, heat gently until fairly hot:
1 egg beaten
1 Tbsp vinegar
½ c water

Blend with fork or pulse in Cuisinart until moistened/mixed. (I pulse the Cuisinart until it is clumped together).

Place on non-stick surface, or slightly floured surface, cut into quarters, shape each into a flat round, wrap with plastic wrap and chill at least 15 minutes or freeze until ready to roll out for pie or such.

Makes 2 double crust 9” pies and 1 9” shell.
