Grannie’s Pie Crust

Looking for a flaky pie crust for your Thanksgiving Day?  I’ve got just the recipe for you to try this holiday.  This is from my Great Grandmother Garrison and is a family favorite for holiday functions.

Single Pie Crust
(My grandmother Garrison’s recipe)
1 1/3 c flour
½ tsp salt
½ c Crisco shortening or lard
3 T ice cold water
½ tsp vinegar

In a food processor pulse flour and salt. Add shortening and pulse into combined (it will resemble cornmeal). Add water and vinegar and pulse until combined- the mixture will form a ball. Place the dough in a bowl and cover and place in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
