Marilyn's Bakery Pie Crust
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup shortening or butter
1 tablespoon sugar
1 egg, whisked
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/2 cup water (as needed)
Mix flour, salt and sugar in a bowl, cut in shortening until pebbly, careful not to overtax to cookie dough. Mix egg, water and vinegar in a separate bowl. Slowly add liquid and stir with a fork until the dough comes together. Only use as much liquid as needed. Turn out to a floured table and ball together. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill. Roll as needed.
