Nebraska Pie Crust from Aunt Beth
1 3/4 cup Crisco Shortening
4 c. flour
1 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. water
1 Tbsp. white vinegar
1 beaten egg

Cut Crisco into mixture of flour, sugar, and salt. When well mixed, add water with white vinegar and egg. Mix well. Divide dough into portions. Chill. Makes 3 double crust (9 inch) pies. Leftovers can be frozen in plastic bag. No matter when you reroll this dough, it will still give a flaky crust!

For a 9" pie, roll about 12" in diameter and 1/4 inch thick. For a Baked Pastry shell: Prick bottom and sides, bake in 425 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes or till golden. Cool on a wire rack.
