Mam-Mam's Blue Ribbon Pie Crust
Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl. Work in the lard (or shortening) with a fork or pastry mixer until you get pea-sized crumbs.
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
1 and 1/4 cups lard or Crisco shortening
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg - beaten
5 Tablespoons ice water
1 Tablespoon white vinegar
Add a few ice cubes to a cup of water until well chilled. Measure out 5 tablespoons and add to the flour crumbs. Add 1 tablespoon of vinegar and mix well with a fork until a ball forms.
Roll out pie crusts on a floured surface. This will make 3-4 crusts depending on the size of your pie plates.
**This is a perfect crust recipe for pies or quiche!**
This might seem like an odd recipe for a breakfast website, but wait until you try it as the crust for a savory quiche or brunch casserole.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank mrbreakfast_lvr for this recipe.
