Fool-Proof Pie Crust
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1¾ cups butter-flavored shortening
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup ice water
  1. Using a pastry blender or fork, mix flour, shortening, sugar, and salt together until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Combine vinegar, egg, and water and mix well. Add wet ingredients to the flour mixture and blend quickly. Be careful not to overwork dough; mix just until liquid is absorbed by the flour mixture. Refrigerate at least 15 minutes before rolling.
  3. This dough can be divided into individual crust portions, wrapped, and frozen for later use.
