Step 13: Dough

This recipe was sent to me by a fellow friend and Instructable fanatic:

Perfect Piecrust

Mix together in a large bowl:
4 cups all purpouse flour
1 Tbs sugar
2 tsp salt

Add and mix with a fork or pastry cutter till crumbly
1 3/4 cups Crisco or lard or butter (room temperature)

In a small bowl beat together:
1/2 cup cold water
1 Tbs white or cider vinegar
1 large egg

Mix the wet into the dry ingredients with a fork until it just holds together.
Turn out onto the counter and divide into four equal pieces.
Smush each portion into 1" thick patties and wrap with plastic wrap.
Refrigerate until stiff (at least 1/2 hour). 
Makes 2 double crust or 4 single crusts.
Can be frozen indefinitely.
Good Job! Looks like it took a lot of work to get to the finished product. The empanadas look delicious.
