Mmm Mmm Monday- Grandma Bonnie's Pie Crust

Hi Ya'll
Today I'd bring you the recipe Grandma Bonnie Longaberger used for her pie crust.

Grandma Bonnie Longaberger's Pie Crust
2 c flour
1/2 T sugar
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 c lard
1 small egg, beaten
1/2 T vinegar
1/4 c water

In a large bowl, sift together flour, sugar and salt. With a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in lard until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix together egg, vinegar and water, then add to flour mixture. Mix until dough is moist enough to form a ball. Wrap in plastic and chill for 30 minutes. Divide dough in 1/2. On a lightly floured surface, roll 1/2 into a 12 inch circle. Press dough into pie plate. Crimp to for decorative border, then prick bottem with fork. Place in freezer while preparing pie filling. Makes one double crust pie.

*note: instead of lard you can totally use crisco
