How to Make Fool-Proof Pie Crust
- In large bowl, mix flour and salt together. Cut shortening/lard into flour and salt mixture using usual pastry method.
- Put vinegar into very cold milk, mix well and add to flour mixture. Knead into a smooth ball. If mixture seems dry, you may add a few drops of ice water. Cover and chill at least 2 hours until ready to use.
- TIPS: Do not over-handle your pie crust, as this can make crust tough. Make sure milk is very cold. Thoroughly chill dough before using.
