Pie Crust from Grandma Wood

3 cups Flour
1 teaspoon Salt
1 ¼ cup Crisco (I use Butter)
1/3 cup very cold water
1 Egg
1 tablespoon Vinegar

Makes 3 to 4 crusts. (Freezable)

No instructions were given, but you mix the flour and salt together, cut in the Crisco (butter). Mix egg with water and vinegar and add it slowly like most pie crust recipes.

I find the dough is very soft and a little sticky. I divide it up and pat into a round. I then wrap it in plastic wrap and place it in the fridge for an hour or two.

Roll out on a floured counter.

One of our favorite things to do with the scraps is to roll them out, place them on a cookie sheet and cut into strips. You can sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar and bake in a hot oven. Very tasty pastry strips.
