Great recipe for excellent flaky crust. Freezes well to use at a later date.
- 5 c flour
- 2 ½ c shortening/Crisco
- 1 beaten egg
- 2 tbsp vinegar
- 1 tbsp salt
Cut shortening into flour and salt until crumbly. Beat egg in a measuring cup, add vinegar, and fill cup with cold water. Add to flour. Mix and chill well. Roll out dough thinly on floured board to give a flakier crust.
This dough freezes well. Allow to thaw before rolling. It retains its flakiness and rolls with ease.
