I had a lot of trouble finding a pie crust recipe that words and this really does. I don't know if the vinegar really makes the difference but I have found that when it is added my crust is nice and flaky.

How to Make Never Fail Pie Crust

  2. Sprinkle with vinegar. Gradually add the milk, tossing with a fork until a ball is formed.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until easy to handle.
  4. For a single crust, roll out pastry on a lightly floured surface to fit a 9" or 10" pie plate. Transfer pastry to a pie plate. Trim shell according to recipe directions.
  5. For double crust, divide pastry in half so that one ball is slightly larger than the other.
