I don't have the recipe in front of me, but if you go to the Martha Stewart site and look up her Easy Pie Crust or Pastry, it's really great. You can put it together in a food processor in a couple of minutes--and it's so easy even the Pastry-challenged (like me!) can pull it off! (09/25/2007)
Type in No Fail pie crust and you will find the best pie crust EVER. I use it ALL the time. It has 1 egg and a tiny bit of vinegar (09/25/2007)

From my mother's 50+ year old cookbook. This is the best one I have ever made, the only one I use, actually.
Using a pastry blender, cut shortening into flour, add salt. When it's ready, there should be pea-sized bits of flour and shortening. Gradually add up to 1/3 cup ice water - varies due to weather. Use pastry blender a few times to knead it together. When it forms almost a ball, you finish kneading, gently, by hand. Rolls immediately because of the ice water, no need to refrigerate first.
