Pie Crust

By Persephone

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.
