Pie crust

Pie crust recipe, from an old cookbook of my mother's... Red Rose, maybe?
5.5 Cups flour
1 pound of lard
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 Tbsp vinegar
1 egg
Cut the lard into the flour.  Mix everything else in a measuring cup.  Add enough water to bring it up to 1 cup.  Mix with flour.  Makes a couple dozen or so pie crusts, depending on how thick you roll them out.

I roll mine out on waxed paper.  Pick up the paper, turn it over onto a pie shell, and peel the paper off.
