This is the recipe my Grandma
Beck used when she was making Thanksgiving pies because it makes several crusts.

Ingredients

4 c
flour
1 3/4 c
crisco
1 Tbsp
sugar
2 tsp
salt
1 Tbsp
white vinegar
1 large
egg
1/2 + c
ice water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
With a fork, mix together the flour, sugar, and salt. Cut in the Crisco with a pastry blender until the mixture is crumbly. Beat together the vinegar, egg and water.
2
Combine both mixtures, and stir until moistened. If the dough is still dry, add more ice water a teaspoon at a time as needed to get the right consistency. Mold the dough gently into a round and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
3
Separate the dough into 5 portions. You should have enough dough to make 2 8-9" double crust pies and one 8-9" single crust pie.
4
Why would you need more water? It all depends on the temperature and humidty inside your kitchen as well as how you measure your flour.
