No Fail Pie Crust II

Submitted by: Molly 
Lard, baking powder, and vinegar combine with flour, water, and an egg to create the perfect dough for a tender, flaky pie crust. This easy recipe makes four roll-out-like-a-dream crusts.

I usually use full egg wash for my apple pies.

Depends, if I have heavy cream on hand I'll use that, otherwise I'll use half and half. If I'm planning on topping with sanding sugar I'll use egg white. I don't know why but I never use the whole egg.

I will sometimes use an egg white but don't like the color I get with the whole egg.

I use whole milk.

Milk or cream depending on what I have. I have a few friends who are allergic to eggs so I try to avoid eggs as much as possible so they can have stuff to eat.

Do you get the nice color with Milk or cream?
Nov. 19, 2012 8:42 am
I think so... I also use apricot jam that gives a nice colour on fruit tarts.

I like the shiny crust that you get with half and half.Mom would pour a small amount on her crust and spread with her fingers.She left it on sort of thick.Sure makes fruit pies shiny.Could pick her pie out across a room.
