This recipe and method were taught to me years ago by a fellow pie aficionado. His motto in life was, "I like two kinds of pie, Pie With Ice Cream, and Pie Without." My personal motto about pie is, "Yes, lets have some!"
1 Tbsp. vinegar
1/4 c. ice water
Combine two mixtures, and stir together with a fork until pastry comes together. Divide into two balls. Roll out to 1/8 inch thick. Place in two 9 inch pie pans. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 min. Makes 2 crusts. (You can also use this as a top and bottom crust for a fruit pie, omit the baking and fill, cover with the top crust and bake according to directions for the fruit pie recipe.)
To form the crust, take one ball of dough and sandwich it between two large sheets of plastic wrap.
Roll out with rolling pin to 1/8 inch thickness, remove top layer of plastic wrap, reserving it to the side for the next ball of dough.
