Vinegar and Egg Crust Recipe
- 3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
- 1 1/4 cups shortening
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoons distilled white vinegar
- 5 tablespoons ice water
step 1: In a large bowl, mix flour and salt. With a pastry blender, cut in the shortening until pea-sized.
step 2: Beat together egg, vinegar and water. Mix liquid with flour mixture, using a fork, until mixture forms a ball (Note: add liquid one tablespoon at a time. You probably will not use all of it.)
step 3: Roll out on lightly floured pastry cloth with cloth covered roller.
step 4: Brush the crust with milk and sprinkle with sugar before baking.
