Aunt Mea's Pie Crust

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 egg
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.
