Vinegar Pie Crust

1 egg
1 Tblsp. Vinegar
5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups shortening
2 Tblsp. Brown sugar
1 Tblsp. Salt
1 tsp. Baking powder

Beat egg in measuring cup. Fill to 3/4-cup mark with cold water. Add vinegar, set aside.

Rub flour, shortening, brown sugar, salt, and baking powder together with hands. Add liquid all at once and work with hands until smooth.

This can be rerolled without getting tough; if dough splits when rolling out, it can be patched and rolled. This is a very tender dough. Bake according to directions for your filling.

Makes 2 (2 crust) pies or 3 single crusts.
