DIRECTIONS

  • Mix salt with flour.
  • With pastry cutter or fork and knife, cut shortening into flour mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make sure there are no large pieces left.
  • Add egg and knead in just until mixed.
  • Quickly add vinegar and ice water all at once.
  • Knead until dough is a cohesive, homogenous ball that just begins to pull away from sides. (Flour hands if necessary.).
  • Divide into four equal balls for immediate use or to freeze. If it's a warm day, you may need to chill the dough just a few minutes to make it easier to roll.
