Recipe for pie crust:
4 cups all purpose flour
1 3/4 cups vegetable shortening
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/2 cup H20
With a fork, mix together first four ingredients. In a separate dish, beat remaining ingredients. Combine the 2 mixtures, stirring with a fork until all ingredients are moistened. Then, with hands, mold dough in a ball.
Chill at least 15 mins before rolling into desired shape. Dough can be left in the refrig. up to 3 days. Or, it can be frozen until ready to use. Makes 2 9" double-crust pies and one 9" shell.
Note: Dough will remain soft in the refrig. and can be taken out and rolled at once.
