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.
4 cups flour
1 3/4 cups shortening
1 T sugar
2 t salt
1 T vinegar
1/2 cup water
- Using a fork or pastry blender, mix together the first 4 ingredients.
- 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.
