One of the most precious things that was left to me was my Grandmother's recipe book. At this time it is fading, so it is time to re-write it.
This is first because everyone needs a good pie crust, and it is the one recipe I have that belonged to Aunt Mea.
Each year for the family picnic she brought gooseberry pie, which people inhaled. Every good pie needs a good crust. This one is very tender.
3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 1/4 cold shortening
1 tbs vinegar
1/4 cup cold water
In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in shortening until it resembles coarse crumbs.
Mix egg, water and vinegar together. Pour into flour all at once and blend with a fork until dough forms a ball.
Wrap with plastic and chill in refrigerator.
