Best Crust In America
The Crust —
4 cups of Gold Medal General Purpose Flour
1 Tea spoon of Salt
2 Tablespoons of Sugar
1 ¼ cup of white Crisco & ½ cup of butter Crisco
1/3 cup of water
2 Tablespoons of White Vinegar
8 Golden Delicious Apples
In a large bowl add 4 cups of flour. Then add 2 tablespoons of salt and 2 tablespoons of sugar. Mix these thoroughly with a fork. Next cut the Crisco – 1 ¼ cups of the white Crisco and ½ cup of the butter flavor into the flour mixture. Cut them together until the flour and Crisco are evenly blended (do by hand – do not use a blender under any circumstances).
Now, put 1/3 cup of water in a measuring cup. Add one egg to the water and then add 2 tablespoons white vinegar. Using a fork – stir the water, egg and vinegar.
Add the water, vinegar and egg mix in small amounts to the flour/Crisco mixture. Mix it with a fork using upward strokes. Add only what you need and don’t soak the flour/Crisco mix. The fewer strokes of the fork the better. Mix it as efficiently as possible.
Now set your crust in the refrigerator for about a half hour.
