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.
