This has been in my recipe box for years. It is the only pie crust recipe that I trust to never fail and the only one I use in anything I bake that requires pie crust dough. DO NOT use any milk that is richer than whole, i.e. 1/2 & 1/2 or cream, it will cause the crust to slide down the sides of the pan during baking as it will be tooooooo short.

How to Make Barb's Favorite Never Fail Pie Crust


  1. Mix the flour and salt in a bowl.
  2. Cut in the shortening until the size of small peas. (I do this using my hands for better control)
  3. Add the vinegar to the milk and IMMEDIATLY combine with the flour mixture.
  4. Mix, with your hands, until the dough holds together.
  5. Roll out to desired size and proceed according to your pie recipe.
  6. For single crust pies, bake at 350 degrees until golden.
