There are a few sites that I follow and Dee Dee’s is one of them. I was HIGHLY impressed with this Pie Crust and will continue to use this one in the future!!
French Pastry Pie Crust from Dee Dee’s
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons white sugar
1 cup shortening
1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
5 tablespoons water
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, and sugar. Mix well, then cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal.
In a small bowl, combine egg, vinegar, and 4 tablespoons of water. Whisk together, then add gradually to flour mixture, stirring with a fork. Mix until dough forms a ball. Add one more tablespoon of water if necessary. Allow dough to rest in refrigerator 10 minutes before rolling out.
