Everyday Pie Crust

Every Day Pie Crust

(Makes enough for 2 single-crust pies)


3 cups flour

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon salt

8 tablespoons cold butter (1 stick)

1/4 shortening

3 tablespoons ice water

1 egg, beaten

2 teaspoons white distilled vinegar

(I know: that's a lot of ingredients. Should have been my first clue.)

Combine dry flour, sugar and salt. Cut in butter and shortening using a pastry blender.

Combine eggs, water, and vinegar in a separate, small bowl. Add to flour mixture.

To pre-bake: (I did this, because I used this crust for my pumpkin pie.)

Preheat oven to 425. Place rolled out pie crust into pie plate; using a fork, prick the bottom of the crust 3-5 times. Line with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 6-8 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
