Serves:

4 single crusts

Prep:

15 Min

Ingredients

4 c
all purpose flour-from the freezer
1 tsp
salt
1 3/4 c
vegetable shortening
1/2 c
water, warm
1
egg
1 tsp
vinegar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
PLACE YOUR FLOUR IN THE FREEZER THE NIGHT BEFORE. I know this may sound strange, but it is key in making this crust amazing!
2
In a small bowl, beat the water, egg and vinegar together; set aside. Measure the flour in a large bowl; mix in salt.
3
Cut the shortening into flour mixture until crumbly and add the wet ingredients. Mix well (I use my hands), divide into 4 and roll into balls. Roll out crust and make the pie of your liking!
