Pie Crust

Judie’s Easy Pie Crust

Yield: 5 single pie crusts

4 cups flour

1 tablespoon sugar

1 ½ teaspoons salt

¾ cup butter

¾ cup shortening

½ cup water

1 egg

1 tablespoon vinegar

  1. In a large mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugar, and salt. Add butter and shortening and cut in until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together water, egg, and vinegar. Add to flour mixture and stir until mixture holds together. Dump out onto floured surface and use your hands to form into a round disk, about 1-inch thick. Use a pastry cutter or knife to cut disk into 5 even pieces. Form each piece into a flat disk and wrap with plastic wrap.
  3. Refrigerate dough at least 20 minutes before rolling out, or freeze to use later.
