Never Fail Pie Dough

Okay, let me just say it - I really, really, REALLY stink at making pie dough. In fact, in order to avoid the pending frustration and cursing that will eventually occur I usually just buy the dough. Until now!!! This recipe really is a no-fail pie dough recipe.

Never Fail Pie Dough
Makes five single crusts
4 cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1¾ cup margarine
½ cup cold water
1 large egg
1 tablespoon white vinegar

1. Mix flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Cut in margarine, using a pastry blender or a fork, until the mixture has grains the size of peas.

2. In a large cup, mix water, egg and vinegar with a fork. Sprinkle vinegar mixture on flour mixture, blending as you sprinkle. When mixtures are blended, knead two to three times. Roll out on floured board or freeze.
