Anytown, CA

This is the easiest,tastiest,flakiest pie crust you'll ever make and it's really no fail.I used to listen to a cooking radio show and heard this recipe in the early 1980's and I still make it. I use half butter,half margarine and white vinegar.Comes out great every time. When the boys were little,I would give them a piece of dough,they would play with it,roll it out,ball it up,I would sprinkle it with sugar and bake it for them and it still came out flaky.
