AuntCarol's Pie Crust – Never-Fail Type

This pie crust recipe is one that’s SUPER easy to roll out – one that never gets soggy – leaving that last piece of pie as good as the first – it’s the ONLY pie crust recipe I’ll ever use – it’s the BEST –


• 1 egg
• 3/4 teaspoon salt
• 1 tablespoon WHITE vinegar
• 7 tablespoons water
• 1 cup shortening (CRISCO)
• 3 cups flour

BEAT egg.
ADD salt, vinegar, and water.
ADD shortening. BLEND with fork, while ADDING flour about a cup at a time.
FORM into one big dough ball. THEN DIVIDE into 3 equal-sized dough balls (or you can divide it into 2 equal-sized dough balls like I do sometimes).

ROLL OUT thin on a lightly floured surface and then PLACE into pie pan of your choice.

Note: Prepared pie shell should be put into the refrigerator 30 minutes before filling – and REMEMBER all fruit pies should be baked on the lowest rack in your oven –
