Never Fail Pie Crust

Pie Crust had always been a trial for me until I found this recipe years ago. Its a quick, easy...no fail recipe that taste yummy too! Use it for your cream pies or your fruit pies and even your pie crust cookies...you won't be disappointed!

Never Fail Pie Crust

4 c. flour
1 T sugar
2 t. salt
1 3/4 c. shortening
1 T. vinegar
1 egg
1/2 c. water

Mix flour, sugar and salt. Add shortening, cut in with a pastry cutter or two knives. Mix until ingredient is blended well. Beat together egg, vinegar and water. Combine to flour mixture, stirring with a fork, making sure ingredient is completely moistened and mixed. Shape into 4 balls, roll out flat onto wax paper (with another piece of wax paper over the top when rolling). Place rolled piece of dough into pie plate, shape. If using for a cream pie, poke holes all over sides and bottom to insure bubbles from forming. IF using for a fruit pie, pour fruit directly into shell (without poking holes) and complete pie by following the directions for your fruit pie. Bake pie crust (without fruit) at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool completly before adding your cream etc...to make your pie. FOR fruit pie....follow the directions on your recipe for baking.
Its time to start thinking of pie baking...the season is creeping up on us!!
