I use to hate and I mean HATE making pie crust… It would always end up crumbly and falling apart or too sticky and I couldn’t get it off the counter top! I even bought some from the grocery store a few times because I would dread making it! Then I came across this pie crust and I never looked back! It’s easy to make… it doesn’t crumbly, fall apart, stick to the counter… like I said its perfect!
Here is what you’ll need:
3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups shortening
5 TBLS cold water
1 TBLS white vinegar
Place the pie crust in your desire dish… if your recipe calls for a “pre-baked” crust bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Otherwise follow your recipe for bake time.

What if you don’t have shortening?
You can use butter… make sure its cold and cut it up in cubes!
I have been making this pie crust for 40 years, and it’s much easier if you combine the water, egg, and vinegar together in a measuring cup, whisk and keep in the fridge until you need it. I make 200 meat pies at Christmas, A lot of pastry. flakey every time
