Old Fashioned Pie Crust

3 C flour
1 tsp. salt
1 C lard or shortening
1 egg
1 tsp. vinegar
1/4 C water

1. Whisk together flour and salt. Cut in the lard until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
2. Combine egg, vinegar and water, mixing well.
3. Make a well in the flour mix and pour water mixture into the well. Combine until a ball forms. Divide into 2 equal pieces.
4. Put flour onto surface and roll each piece of dough separately into the desired size. Use as little flour as possible, too much flour will make the crust tough.
