This is my grandma’s  recipe and it is the best pie crust you will ever have.



Love this pic, so fun for summer. And the people in this picture love pie.


As you can see we almost always have some on hand in the freezer

2  1/2  sticks butter, cut into cubes (see above)

1/2 tea baking powder

1/4 salt

1 beaten egg

1Tab white vinegar

4-8 Tab ice cold water
