This is the recipe my Grandma

How to Make Grandma Beck's Thanksgiving Pie Crust Recipe

Step-by-Step

  • 1With a fork, mix together the flour, sugar, and salt. Cut in the Crisco with a pastry blender until the mixture is crumbly. Beat together the vinegar, egg and water.
  • 2Combine both mixtures, and stir until moistened. If the dough is still dry, add more ice water a teaspoon at a time as needed to get the right consistency. Mold the dough gently into a round and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • 3Separate the dough into 5 portions. You should have enough dough to make 2 8-9" double crust pies and one 8-9" single crust pie.
  • 4Why would you need more water? It all depends on the temperature and humidty inside your kitchen as well as how you measure your flour.
