Never Fail Pie Crust

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 cups shortening, *
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, well beaten
  • 5 Tablespoons water
  • 1 Tablespoon vinegar

*Blue Bonnet margarine works well in place of shortening, it's easy to measure.

This dough can be rerolled without being tough, so you can use scraps to make another crust or to cover a pot pie. To make a prebaked pie shell, make a foil form. After you put your crust in the pan, set the foil form in and fill with dried beans. Bake 15 minutes, then lift out form and beans carefully and continue to bake crust until golden brown.

Answers:

Never fail Pie Crust

The very best pie crust is made with lard. If you are using all-purpose flour, do not knead the flour, you will bring out the Gluten, which will make the dough tough, instead use all cake flour or 1/2 all-purpose and 1/2 cake flour with 2 Tablespoon corn starch, then add 1 Tablespoon sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla extract. Mix in electric mixer and let set in fridge for 1 hour. Your crust will be light and flaky
