Crust: In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt; cut in the shortening until mixture resembles course crumbs.
In a small bowl, combine the water, egg and vinegar; stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Form into a roll. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
On a floured surface, roll 2/3 of the dough out to an 18x14" rectangle. Carefully place onto the bottom and up the sides of a 13x9x2" glass baking dish.

Use the remaining crust to make lattice strips, place over filling. Brush pastry with half and half.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350 degrees and bake for another hour or until filling is bubbly. Cool completely. Store in refrigerator.
