Never Fail Pie Crust

 




 

I got this recipe from Sister Lance in Virginia. It seriously can not go wrong! It makes 5 single pie crusts and last forever in the freezer. Just wrap well in plastic and take out about an hour before you want to use it. I use it for quiche and the hand pies and dessert pies too.




Ingredients

4 cups flour

1 3/4 cups shortening

1 T sugar

2 t salt

1 T vinegar

1 egg

1/2 cup water

Directions

  1. Using a fork or pastry blender, mix together the first 4 ingredients.
  2. In a separate dish, beat the remaining ingredients. Combine the 2 mixtures, stirring with a fork until all ingredients are moistened. Then divide into 5 parts and shape into balls. Chill for 15 minutes before rolling out or wrap and freeze.
