This recipe is very basic, but it’s also totally awesome. It’s easy and creates a rather flaky crust. Just make sure to follow the recipe to the letter. I once doubled the recipe and doubled all the ingredients except the butter. That was some of the driest crust I’ve ever had.
In a bowl, blend together 2 cups of flour, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and 1 teaspoon of baking powder. Cut in 2/3 cup of cold butter with a pasty knife. Then mix in 1 egg (jumbo or extra large), 1 tablespoon of vinegar, and 1/3 cup of water. Mix in gradually with a pastry cutter or fork. Add in a little extra water if needed. Roll the crust onto a floured board. Should make two crusts.
