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 Egg

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.
