A friend shared this recipe with me years ago. The ingredients sounded so strange to me, but I gave it a try. I am so glad I did. It is so flaky and delicious. It is very versatile. I use it for pie crusts, quiches, hand-held chicken pot pies, etc. I can't tell you how many times I've been asked for the recipe. It really is that good.
Total Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 2 double or 5 single pie crusts

Mix flour, salt and Crisco until crumbly. Beat egg, vinegar and water together. Add to flour mixture. Work together quickly. A soft dough will be easier to handle if you let it rest for about 15 minutes. Roll out on a floured pastry board. Place in pie plate and bake at 350 degrees until lightly browned.
No Cholesterol Piecrust(very flaky)makes one 2crust pie; 1 3/4 c. all purpose flour
1/2 c. vegetable oil+ 1/4 c. ice cold water
Sift dry ingredients into a bowl.Beat together the oil & water until thick and creamy. Pour all at once into dry ingredients.Toss lightly with fork(mixture will be moist)Form into 2 balls.Roll
between sheets of wax paper. Carefully place bottom crust into pieplate,then filling. cover with top crust.Very tasty, flaky & best of all: NO CHOLESTEROL!!
I use oil instead of hard shortening. My receipe is:
2 C. flour, 1t. salt, mixed together.
Mix 1/2 c. oil and 1/4 c. milk, Stir into flour mixture
with a fork until all has come together. Gather into a
ball with hands. Cut in half and roll each half between Sheets of waxed paper. Moisten counter before putting 1st piece waxed paper down. That will keep it from moving around. Take off top paper and flip dough into pan
