This recipe for homemade pie crust makes 4 pie crusts. I usually make four at a time. They will keep in the refrigerator for several days and stay soft. I use them for pies, quiche and pot pies.4 cups all purpose flour 1 tablespoon sugar 1 3/4 cups shortening 1 tablespoon vinegar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 egg (beaten) 1/2 cup water Blend flour, sugar and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix together egg, vinegar and water. Add to flour mixture. Make into round balls and chill before rolling out on a floured surface. I have always believed is best to know how to make something from scratch. Even if you don’t use the recipe every time you need a pie crust, you always have the option if needed. Don’t Forget to Pin!
