(named after the neighbor who gave her the recipe, but I've seen it under many names.) It's easy to handle, and the vinegar keeps the pastry from getting tough, even if you overwork it.

Cut together with 2 knives or a pastry blender, (or pulse in a processor), until mixture resembles coarse meal:

3 cups flour
1 1/2 cups vegetable shortening
1 tsp. salt

Mix separately:
1 egg
1 Tbs. vinegar
5 Tbs. water

Stir into the flour mixture until just combined.

Best to chill an hour before rolling out.

Makes 3 single crusts, or 4 small ones
