How to Make Never fail pie crust


  • 1Beat egg; add water and vinegar.
  • 2Blend in shortening, salt & slowing add flour mixing after every cup.
  • 3Divide into 3 portions of equal sizes (as close as you can eye it) Make into a ball and roll out on a floured surface, not too much flour as it will make it too brittle and fall apart. Makes 3 single crusts.
  • 4I was told that it freezes well although I have never done that before. So if you choose to do it please let me know how it works.
