    This recipe is over 100 years old. My sister-in-law’s grandmother said it was a no-fail recipe. It’s the best I ever had.


    4 cups all-purpose flour
    1 3/4 cups shortening
    3 tablespoons white sugar
    2 teaspoons 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.
