Foolproof Pie Crust

This is one of my Grandma's recipes. She made a lot of pies - like, a lot. She'd make 5 or 6 at a time and freeze some of them for later. My favorite was her pecan pie, but really, they're all pretty darn good. This is one of my favorite pie crusts to make because it holds up well.
Foolproof Pie Crust 4 c. flour 2 tsp. salt 1 Tb. sugar 1 3/4 c. shortening 1/2 c. water 1 egg 1 Tb. white vinegar
Stir together flour, salt, sugar, and shortening in mixing bowl. Beat together water, egg, and vinegar. Then mix into dry ingredients and stir until mixed. Shape into 5 parts. Roll and shape into pie pans. 
Makes 5 single crust pies or 2 double crust pies + 1 single crust. Freezes well.
