This recipe came from my husband’s grandmother. When my mom-in-law mentioned it to me, I was surprised at how easy the recipe was. One of the things I love about it is that it makes 6 regular pie crusts!! You must know by now that if I can make something in bulk and save some for next time, it’s a HUGE added bonus for me!
What you Need:
4 cups all purpose flour
2 cups Crisco
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 ½ teaspoon salt
Mix to crumble. I mix it together in my kitchen aid mixer using my dough hook.
1 beaten egg
½ cup water
1 Tablespoon white vinegar (I know this sounds weird but trust me it works!)
Mix lightly to a soft dough.
Turn out onto a well-floured surface. Roll it out and shape into a rectangle. Divide into 6 sections.
If you are freezing them, then wrap tightly in plastic wrap, then wrap in freezer paper. Label and freeze.
To thaw – take out however many pie shells you need and set them on the counter or let it thaw in the fridge.
