Grandma's Secret Pie Crust

The ingredients stir up easily, the dough rolls out perfectly, and the crust bakes beautifully. The secret ingredient in this recipe to make this delicious flaky pie crust is distilled white vinegar.


2 9-inch single pie crusts or 1 9-inch double pie crust


3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups shortening
1 large egg, beaten
1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
4 tablespoons water


Preheat oven to 425°F (218°C). In large bowl mix flour and salt. Cut in shortening with two butter knifes.

In separate bowl, mix together egg, vinegar, and water. Drizzle wet mixture into dry mixture, cutting it in. Roll out dough, and fit into two 9-inch pie pans.

Bake for 12 minutes, until lightly browned.
