THE PERFECT PIE CRUST RECIPE
Crisco brand butter-flavored shortening
all purpose flour
whole large egg
apple cider vinegar
the amount is in my instructions
Combine flour and sugar.
Cut cold butter into chunks.
Add the butter and shortening into the flour/sugar mixture.
Cut-in or mix with restraint. Leaving bits of butter as large as peas.
In a liquid measuring cup mix together; vinegar, egg, and salt.
Add enough cold water to your egg mixture so the total volume equals 1 cup.
Stir or whisk egg mixture vigorously to blend well.
Pour liquids into flour/shortening mix.
Combine quickly, yet gently; so the butter remains in peas sized pieces.
Flatten dough into the shape of your finished product.
Wrap well in plastic and refrigerate.
For savory crusts; omit the sugar. This recipe makes a fabulous crust for potpies!
