Ruth’s Grandma’s Pie Crust

Capture

 What’s the world’s greatest lie? It’s this: that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what’s happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. –Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

This no fail pie crust recipe is over one hundred years old.  I found it on the Allrecipes site.

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¾ cups shortening
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 egg
  • ½ 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.
