Flour your counter well, and roll..it has such a soft consistency..so easy to work with
After I posted this recipe; I called my aunt to see if she knew what the vinegar does in this recipe. She didn't know, other than maybe helps with the flakiness...
She said she rolls the dough out to size needed; then rolls the dough onto the rolling pin, and rolls it out onto the pie pan..I have done it that way also..so easy
My method which worked fine, was I put all in processor except the water and pulsed 8 - 10 times, then when was large crumbly pieces; I added the water a little at a time, till was holding together..I then wrapped in plastic wrap and chilled for an hour.
Just make sure you use plenty of flour when rolling out..
