Double Pastry:
Combine flour and salt. Cut in room temperature shortening until it resembles peas. Beat egg, water and vinegar together. Add to flour and mix with a fork until mixture is moistened. DO NOT OVERWORK. It will make it tough.
Divide dough in half and shape each in a ball.

I always put a sheet of wax paper on my counter , put the dough in the middle, cover with another sheet of wax paper and roll out. I remove the top layer of wax paper, flip the crust over into the pie plate and peel off the wax paper. Discard.
Repeat for top crust.
