Ruth’s Grandma’s Pie Crust

This recipe is over 100 years old. My sister-in-law’s grandmother said it was a no-fail recipe. It’s the best I ever had.

Ingredients

4 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 cups shortening
3 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 egg

1/2 cup water

Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour, shortening, sugar, and salt. Blend together with a pastry cutter until crumbly.
  2. In a small bowl, mix egg with water. Blend into flour mixture. Chill in refrigerator until ready to use.
