I've used this recipe for many many years - it is so easy, always so good, and easy to roll out and handle. It is wonderful to have the extra rounds in the freezer for whenever I make pies or quiche.
It is similar to another one I was reading this morning, but different enough for me to submit this version!

Ingredients

How to Make Mimi’s Really Easy Flakey Pastry

Step-by-Step

  1. With a fork, or in the Cuisinart with knife blade, mix:
    4 c flour
    1 Tbsp sugar
    2 tsp salt
    1 ¾ c shortening

    In a measuring cup in the microwave, or in a small pan, heat gently until fairly hot:
    1 egg beaten
    1 Tbsp vinegar
    ½ c water

    Blend with fork or pulse in Cuisinart until moistened/mixed. (I pulse the Cuisinart until it is clumped together).

    Place on non-stick surface, or slightly floured surface, cut into quarters, shape each into a flat round, wrap with plastic wrap and chill at least 15 minutes or freeze until ready to roll out for pie or such.

    Makes 2 double crust 9” pies and 1 9” shell.
