My Aunt Leslie makes the best pie crust around. It's always light and flaky, and it just melts in your mouth!! This recipe makes enough for a top and bottom crust for a 9" pie pan.

In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, egg and water until well combined. Set aside.

In a second bowl combine the flour and sugar, cutting in the shortening until crumbly and about the size of peas.
