This is my great grans recipe exactly! It is the only pie crust recipe we have ever used.You just can not mess it up as long as the water is ice cold and the egg is room temperature.

I have read that the vinegar makes the gluten in the dough relax and makes it easier to work with, how ever I cannot attest to that from a personal point, as pie dough scares me to death.

The recipe I use is similar to this but I use butter flavored Crisco and 1 TBS of white vinegar to tenderize the crust.
