Perfect Pie Crust

I absolutely love this crust it is delicious and super easy to make and is better for you than store bought! 

4 cups flour
1 3/4 cups shortening
3 tb white sugar
2 tsp salt
1 egg
1/2 cup water

In a large mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour, shortening, sugar, and salt.
Blend together with a pastry cutter until crumbly.
In a small bowl, mix egg with water.
Blend into flour mixture.
Chill in refrigerator until ready to use.
Bake at 450 for 10-12 minutes or till golden brown.

*If you have trouble with your crusts falling over while baking take some foil and roll it up (like a snake) and place around the crust.
*Makes about 3 crusts.
