DIRECTIONS

  • Place a large sieve in a large mixing bowl.
  • Into the sieve place the flour, baking powder, salt, and brown sugar.
  • Sift into bowl.
  • With a pastry blender, cut in the shortening until crumbly and no large bits or shortening remain.
  • In a measuring cup, beat the egg, add the vinegar, and enough cold water to make one cup.
  • Pour over flour mixture, a little at a time, stirring with a fork until the dough begins to stick together.
  • Add more flour, if necessary, and knead a few times right in the bowl until you have a large, smooth ball.
  • Pat firmly into the bowl and lightly mark off six equal portions.
  • With a knife, cut through each portion.
  • Pat into round balls and place in separate plastic bags.
  • Dough will keep in the refrigerator for two weeks, or in the freezer for two months.
