    E.A.'s Note:

    Found this in Martha Stewart Living two years ago. The best pie crust recipe I've found yet!!! The vinegar in the crust makes it very tender.

      I have previously favored a half butter half shortening recipe for the mix between flakey and flavor, but I now think this is the better recipe. You could really taste the butter with no sacrifice in flakes! We used this recipe for Pumpkin Praline Pie #3567 on Thanksgiving and then for the top of the Chicken (Turkey) Pot Pie Chicken Pot Pie that we made with leftovers. Worked flawlessly in both recipes. REMEMBER TO CHILL THE BUTTER AND THE SHORTENING. It is critical ;-) This is our new family pie crust recipe.

      Very good and flaky, the way I like pie crusts. I used this for a pumpkin pie and doubled it for a bunch of turkey pot pies (Thanksgiving leftovers). On one batch, I neglected to use chilled shortening which is a mistake... it's amazing how important it is to chill the butter and shortening!
