Fool Proof Pie Crust

My mom and aunt gave me this recipe for a pie crust for when I am baking the Winter Peach Pie recipe that they make every year.

  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 3/4 cups Crisco
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, sugar and salt.
  2. Cut in the Crisco.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat together the remaining ingredients.
  4. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture.  Refrigerate for 1/2 hour before using.
  5. Roll on a lightly floured board or between waxed paper.
  6. The crust is very short and will melt if placed in a pie plate and baked alone.  Best used when it is filled.
This pie crust mixture can be frozen and thawed for later use.
