No Fail Pie Crust

I know this may sound strange, but I love making pie's, even though I don't get to make them often enough. I love being able to choose different fillings, and to find new recipes of fun things to fill them with. This is an easy no fail pie crust recipe. This makes 4 single crusts, or 2 double crusts, the good thing is you can make and freeze these crusts if you don't need all 4 at once. Happy Pie Making!

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups butter
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 3 fluid ounces cold water
  1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour and salt. Using a pastry cutter or 2 knifes cut in the butter until you get to pea sized chunks.
  2. Place the egg and vinegar in a measuring cup and add cold water to measure 1/2 cup of total liquid. Pour this into the flour mixture and mix just until the dough can be made into a large ball.
  3. Divide dough into four equal portions. Wrap in plastic and store in the refrigerator. Dough may be refrigerated for up to three days or frozen for up to three months.
