Pie Crust

This is a commercial for my recipe blog.  

I meant to post this pie crust recipe on my recipe blog, but I realized after I was all done typing it in with the pictures , that I set up this post on my family blog.    Check out at the family recipe blog at:  or click here (The official name of the family recipe blog is:  Family Favorites for Feeding Frenzies.  My brother would call meal times at our family reunions feeding frenzies - hence the name of the recipe blog.)

1 Tbs sugar
4 cups flour
1 3/4 cups Crisco shortening
2 teaspoons salt
1 Tbs vinegar
1 egg
1/2 cup water (cold)

Mix first 4 ingredients with a fork
Mix liquids together
Mix all together

Mold into ball and chill 15 minutes in fridge.

This recipe will make 3 or 4 one crust pie crusts.
Will keep 3 days in fridge or you can freeze.

For one crust pie:  Trim overhanging edge  of pastry 1 inch from rim of pan.  Fold and roll pastry under, even with pan; flute.

For baked pie shell:  Prick bottom and side throughly with fork.  Bake at 475 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.

I got this recipe from Agnes Cuyler about 25 years ago.  I was usually a little nervous about making pie crusts until I started using this recipe.   I googled pie crust to get pictures to post on this blog and I found the almost the exact same recipe here on the pioneer woman website.  The best thing about the post is that they have step by step pictures to help you through the process of making a pie crust.  Be sure to check out the  pioneer woman link!
