Shift dry ingredients. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender or two forks.
Put egg and vinegar in a measuring cup and fill to 3/4 cup with cold water.
Mix dry ingredients and make a dough. Use your hands or a food processor. It isn't particularly fussy to work with and you will end up with a lovely flaky crust.
Divide the dough into discs and refrigerate for at least an hour before using. You can easily freeze what you don't use for future pie happy times.
Help roll your crusts out to the right size, and keep your counters clean with a handy dough mat.
