This is the recipe my grandmother used and passed down. She had a cafe back during the depression and was famed for her pies.

How to Make Never Fail Pie Crust

Step-by-Step

  1. Sift flour and salt together and cut in shortening. Add egg, vinegar, and ice water - mix well.
  2. Pour onto floured surface and knead until smooth. Divide in half and roll out each half. Will make a single two-crust pie or two single crust pies.
  3. If crust is to be baked before the filling is added, here's a little trick. Prick the pie crust then line the bottom and sides with a piece of aluminum foil and pour dried beans to cover the bottom - about an inch deep. Your pie crust will bake without puckering.
