French Pie Crust

This is a very nice flaky crust. I use this all the time.


  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/3 cups shortening
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • Ad
  • 1 egg, beaten


Blend the dry ingredients and then add the liquids. mix well.

This makes 2 crusts. If any is leftover, I usually roll it out, cut it in strips and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon and bake. Good! Kids love them. So does this adult.

Source: when I recieved this recipe, I found out it had been handed down through six of my friends.

does it work on savory foods? Like making beef pies? Or would it be too sweet?

You say "Blend the dry ingredients and then add the liquids. Mix well"

Does this mean that you use a mixer for this?
