Never Fail Pie Crust

Yield: 1 serving
Community Recipe from


  • flour


  1. I got this recipe from Sister Lance in Virginia. It seriously can not go wrong! It makes 5 single pie crusts and last forever in the freezer. Just wrap well in plastic and take out about an hour before you want to use it. I use it for quiche and the hand pies and dessert pies too.

  2. Ingredients

  3. 4 cups flour
  4. 1 3/4 cups shortening
  5. 1 T sugar
  6. 2 t salt
  7. 1 T vinegar
  8. 1 egg
  9. 1/2 cup water

  10. 1. Using a fork or pastry blender, mix together the first 4 ingredients.
  11. 2. In a separate dish, beat the remaining ingredients. Combine the 2 mixtures, stirring with a fork until all ingredients are moistened. Then divide into 5 parts and shape into balls. Chill for 15 minutes before rolling out or wrap and freeze.
