If a recipe says "untested"...

We want to post scans of all the original recipes so everyone in our family can enjoy them even if we haven't gotten around to testing each one in our modern kitchen. As we test each recipe, we will add our notes and photos to the recipes we do test and remove the note "untested" in the title. If you make one of the untested recipes, take a photo of the finished product and send us a note to let us know of your experience so we may include those in the recipes as well.

Never-fail pie crust (untested)

This recipe is written in ballpoint pen in handwriting belongs to Grammy's daughter Ann. It is noted that this is a recipe for a "double crust", meaning that it will provide enough pastry dough for both a pie shell and a top crust.

  • 1 cup shortening (if margarine is used add 3 tablespoons more)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar

  1. Mix flour, shortening and salt well until crumbly
  2. Add beaten egg, water and vinegar to the crumb mixture
  3. Blend until ready to roll
  4. If the dough is a bit dry, work with hands to get it to stick together
  5. Use the dough as directed for whatever pie recipe you are making
