Sift flour, sugar and salt together. Add shortening (I prefer lard) and mix well with 2 knives or a pastry blender.
In separate dish beat the water, egg and vinegar together with a fork. Combine the flour mixture and the egg mixture together. Don't beat the flour and egg mixture together, just stir together gently with a fork.
Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
Bake according to individual pie recipes. After I put the top crust on a 2 crust pie, I brush the top crust with milk and sprinkle generously with sugar.
