For some reason nothing reminds me of summer more than a lemon meringue pie. I had this pie crust recipe that I have wanting to try and a bunch of lemons and eggs in the fridge...soooo why not!
The pie crust recipe.....good! It was nice and flaky but not my favorite. I didn't use all shortening, I used half shortening and half butter. The next pie crust I try I want to make it with leaf lard...if I can ever find the darn stuff!!

- In large bowl mix flour and salt. Cut in shortening with two butter knifes.
- In separate bowl, mix together egg, vinegar, and water. Drizzle wet mixture into dry mixture, cutting it in.
- Roll out dough, and fit into two 9 inch pie pans.
- Bake at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 12 minutes.
The recipe for the lemon meringue pie I used is here.
I continue my quest for the perfect pie crust....one day I will find it!
