How to make it

  • Place oil in the freezer until it is almost frozen. If you want to speed up this process divide the oil in two cups. Place pre-sifted flour in a bowl add baking powder and salt. Place bowl in refrigerator. In a cup place water, egg and vinegar, beat and then place in refrigerator. If possible place rolling pin in fridge, also.
  • When oil is of the right consistency, cut it into the flour mixture. Working quickly, mix until it forms uniformly course crumbs.
  • Add the liquid ingredients gradually, tossing lightly with a fork, until dough sticks together.
  • If dough is too wet add a little extra flour. Roll out onto floured surface. Use as you would use any regular pie pastry.
  • This recipe make enough for a 9" double crust pie. This dough is fairly easy to work with, but is best not overworked.
  • For baked pie shell prick all sides, bottom and edges of crust.
  • Add pie plate in center to reduce shrinkage.
  • Bake at 400 degrees F about 10 to 15 minutes
