Cliff's Antigonish Pie Crust Recipe

This is my father's pie crust recipe. It takes a little practice to get it right but it is really tasty.

Pie Crust

First you sift 5 cups of flour into the bowl. Add 2 teaspoons of baking powder,  ½  a teaspoon of salt, ½ a teaspoon of baking soda, 1 teaspoon of sugar, and 1 pound of Crisco. Then you mix one egg, 1/3 cup of vinegar and one cup of water in a bowl and add it to the other ingredients. Do not overwork the dough. This makes enough dough for four pies. Enjoy.
