Believe me I have used many of the frozen pie shell’s you can purchase at the store. Who hasn’t? They are fast, easy, and dependable… right?

However I also know that some are better-tasting than others.  So why not make your own pie crust? They aren’t as hard as you may think. Plus, they taste like they are homemade!

I am pretty sure you have all the ingredients in your pantry too.

No Fail Pie Crust
*this will make 2 shells

3 C. Flour
1 1/2 C. Shortening
1 tsp. Salt
1 Egg~ beaten
5 TBSP Ice Water
1 TBSP Vinegar

Mix flour and salt together.
Cut in shortening with a pastry blender.
In small bowl beat together the egg, water and vinegar.
Pour all wet ingredients into the dry all at once, blend together until all liquid is absorbed.
Divide into 2 crusts.
This is a easy-to-work-with dough that can be re-rolled easily.

*This is a freezer friendly crust.  Just roll out into desired size and place in foil pan or you can also roll out dough between 2 sheets of freezer paper, place in plastic freezer bag.

Easy does it,
