    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    pie crust

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      To make the crust, mix the flour, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl.
    2. 2
      Using a pastry blender, cut in the shortening and butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
    3. 3
      Stirring with a fork, add just enough of the egg yolk mixture to moisten the dough so it holds together when pinched between the thumb and forefinger.
    4. 4
      (You may not need all of the yolk mixture, or you may have to add a bit more water.) Gather up into a thick disk and wrap in waxed paper.
    5. 5
      Refrigerate at least 30 minutes, or up to overnight.

      Actually this ranks up there as the best pie crust I've eaten. Extremely tender! I added a few dashes of cinnamon to the dry ingredients. The only reason I subtracted a star was that it was very difficult to handle. I will give it another try, though. Maybe our warm weather played a factor, although I tried to keep everyting as cold as possible! Had with a Rhubarb pie. Delish!
