I have never in my life made a pie, let alone a pie crust! So when I was told to bring pie to this Thanksgiving dinner I was nervous. I tried this pie crust and now I can sleep at night. It was easy and tasted godd and flakey. Although there is no baking info (a beginer needs that!) I was able to cross-reference a different recipe I had. Thanks for the "Sure Thing"

I misplaced this same recipe. I couldn't recall how much shortening to use. I was so glad to find it. All my friends and family say that I make the best piecrust of anyone. I say, "It's all in a recipe." I also use this recipe for the best cobblers. For cobblers, I replace half the shortening with butter. Don't let the vinegar discourage you from trying this crust, it cooks out and you cannot taste it.

I'm pie-challenged, and this looked like a bit of a Frankenstein by the time I got the top on! Somehow, in the baking process, it all melded together and looked quite respectable when it came out of the oven. It was so flaky and tender! I couldn't believe how good it tasted! This is a keeper! MizzNezz, thank you so much for sharing your wonderful recipe!
