  • 1 1/2 cups Crisco
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 egg
  • 5 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar


  1. In a large bowl, mix Crisco with flour. Combine the mixture using your hands or two forks.
  2. Add egg to the flour mixture.
  3. Then, add cold water and vinegar. Mix until fully combined into one ball of dough.
  4. Separate the pie dough into thirds. Roll each section of dough into a small ball and put in a Ziploc bag. Flatten the dough slightly (to about 1/2 inch thick) to make rolling of dough easier later.
  5. Seal the Ziploc bags and place your three bags of pie crust in the freezer until you are ready to use them. You can use them immediately or freeze for later.
  6. When you are ready to use a pie crust, remove one from the freezer and allow it to thaw for 15 minutes. Flour the surface of your counter before rolling out the pie crust. Enjoy!
