Our Favorite Pie Pastry

This recipe is great for making several pies at once.

4 cups flour
2 cups Crisco
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup water - can substitute apple juice chilled (cold)
1 Tbsp. vinegar
1 egg beaten

Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and Crisco. Add water, vinegar, and egg.
Rolls out best if chilled first.
Makes about 6 crusts.

(Yoder Community Recipes, Yoder Kansas)

We used to live up in Amish country which was amazing and beautiful. I loved the little restaurant they had there in Yoder, Kansas. While going through to the state fair we stopped and ate and Dan bought me their community cookbook. I have always been totally fascinated with Amish life and this was a real treat for me. I use this cookbook at least once or twice a week. Very downhome food!
