this is a tender, flaky crust. I'd tried many crust recipes this is the one I always fall back on. It is delicate, so I roll it up onto the rolling pin to transfer to the pie pan.

  1. sift dry ingredients together.
  2. cut in shortening with pastry blender or fork until coarse crumbs.
  3. add melted butter and stir in
  4. blend in cold water, with vinegar mixed into it. make sure water is cold from refrigerator.
  5. divide dough into 2 balls.
  6. roll out one ball to desired size to fit pie pan. roll up on to pin to transfer to pan.
  7. put filling in pie crust, and repeat with second ball of dough, making slits for air to escape.
  8. for a "baker's" look. brush milk over top crust and sprinkle with small amount of sugar before baking. makes top crust "sweet and crispy" and looks great.
