Mary Beth's Pie Crust aka Hotel Utah Pie Crust

This is the pie crust I always make - it comes out perfect and doesn't require a lot of fuss. You can even freeze half if you want it later.

2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup shortening
1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tablespoon vinegar (I use apple cider vinegar)
1/4 cup cold water
1 egg (beaten)

Combine shortening, salt and flour until mixture is well combined. Add remaing ingredients. Roll out between 2 pieces of Saran Wrap. Makes 2 pie crust rounds.

To make a baked fruit pie, place crust in the pie pan and prick all over with a fork. Pat it into the pan. Brush with egg wash or butter. Sprinkle the bottom with 1 TB flour and 1 TB sugar. Use the crust as desired
