This recipe is one of my Mom's from many years ago. I don't know where she got it, but she swore by it and so do I. Very flaky (or short as my Dad used to say)
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1⁄4 cups shortening
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg (well beaten)
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- Mix flour, salt and shortening using a pastry blender.
- Combine the egg, water and vinegar and pour into flour mixture all at once.
- Combine ingredients with your hands until soft dough forms.
- Roll out on floured surface.
This recipe is foolproof...I have even substituted non hydrogenated shortening for regular and still comes out perfect. Thankyou for posting it!
