Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup cold shortening
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 4-6 tbsp ice water
  • 1 tsp white vinegar

Instructions

  • Combine flour and salt in a bowl or the bowl of a food processor.  Next, add the shortening and pulse until a crumbly texture is achieved.  Combine the egg, 4 tablespoons ice water and vinegar and add this mixture to the food processor stirring until the dough forms into a ball and pulls away from the sides of your container.  Add more water if necessary.  Remove dough from the processor and shape into a disk.  Cover with plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator at least one hour.  I made mine a day ahead to save time and it was the perfect consistency.
