Aunt Linda’s Never-Fail Pie Crust

by Heather Harris Brady

Warning: This recipe is just plain weird, and may cause emotional disturbance. Just close your eyes when you add the egg and vinegar. It will be okay.

  • 3 T. butter
  • ½ c. Crisco
  • 2 c. unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 t. vinegar
  • 4 T. cold water

Add the flour to a large mixing bowl and cut in the butter.

Mix the egg, vinegar and water.

Add to the flour and stir, lifting the flour with a fork  until it is completely moistened. (It will be sticky, keep going!)

Divide in two and roll out one half on a well-floured board.
