Pie Crust

Bettie labeled this "Perfect Pie Crusts" but I can't really promise that, because my mom never quite got them to work and I've never tried, so I can't tell you what the secret is. Good luck!

2 c flour
1 1/2 t sugar
1 t salt
1 scant cup Crisco
1 1/2 t vinegar
1 egg
1/2 c water

Mix flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl with fork. Add Crisco and mix with fork until crumbly. In a small bowl, beat together water, egg, and vinegar until foamy. Combine with the dry ingredients, stirring with fork until it forms a ball. Break in half and wrap each ball in plastic. Chill for 30 minutes, then roll out. Makes 2 crusts. Double batch makes 5 crusts.
