Aunt Maxine Poling's fool-proof recipe for Pie Crust
|1 3/4 c||crisco|
Have you considered Holland House
My aunt Maxine gave me this recipe back in the 60's (she'd been using it for her pie's for more years than that).
She passed away a few years ago, I just want to give her the credit for this.
I am posting a variety of my pies, my crust is made with Aunt Maxine's pie-dough recipe.
Cut in the Crisco with fork or pastry blender until crumbly.
In a small bowl beat the egg and stir in the water and vinegar.
Add to flour mixture and mix.
Divide dough into 4 equal parts, shape into a nice round ball and put into plastic bag.
Chill for 30 minutes before rolling out.
Bake according to your recipe instructions for either one crust empty or filled, or double-crust pies.
Makes 4 single-crust or 2 double-crust.
Can refrigerate up to 7 days before rolling out.
Depending on what kind of pie it is I sometimes sprinkle cinnamon-sugar (or Splenda) over the crust before baking.
Or sometimes I will sprinkle sugr crystals over the crust befor baking.
