DIRECTIONS

  • Place flour, sugar and salt in a medium/large bowl.
  • Add the shortening and"cut" in until the mixture is crumbly and there are no big lumps of fat. Use forks, two knives or a pastry cutter; pea size crumbs please.
  • In a small bowl whisk together vinegar, egg and ice water.
  • Slowly add to flour mixture with a fork just until all ingredients are coming together and begin to form a ball. At this point I press together to make sure dough is holding together.
  • Divide dough into fourths.
  • Wrap each one in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes or freeze for up to 6 months.
