Any pie worth its crust(pun intended) must contain a remarkable crust. I have a friend who now scrapes the filling from any pie that isn't made with the following pie crust recipe!
You just don't know good until you've tasted it.
Enjoy!
of course, you must make "crusties" with leftover crust dough!

How to Make Aunt Roby's "not so secret" pie crust

Step-by-Step

  1. mix first three ingredients in a large bowl.
    cut in shortening until crumbly.
  2. in small bowl or measuring cup, mix egg vinegar and water.
  3. combine all and mix well.
    divide into 4-6 balls and shape into flat patty.
    wrap in wax paper or saran wrap individually and chill for at least 30 minutes in fridge.
  4. Patties may be stored in an airtight container for up to one week.
    a good way to measure shortening is to fill a liquid measuring cup with 1/4 cup full and then fill with shortening until water line reaches the two cup line...you'll end up with 3/4 cup shortening!
  5. after chilling, roll out your dough. We sandwich it between two sheets of wax paper to avoid sticking.
  6. we usually get two full crusts(one to keep and one to give away or save for pot pie) and enought oeftover for Crusties...
  7. crusties: Roll out dough and cut into stripes.
    Twist and place on cookie sheet and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and bake a t 425 degrees
    until firm and golden!
