Perfect Pie Crust
4 cups King Arthur all-purpose flour
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 3/4 cups shortening (I use Crisco Butter-flavored in sticks for easy measuring)
1/2 cup cold water
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1 large egg
In a stand mixer, place all the dry ingredients and turn on low to combine. While the mixer is running on medium speed, add the shortening, 1 T at a time. Mix until it resembles "sand". In a 2-cup glass measure, add the water, vinegar and large egg. Whisk to combine. Turn mixer on medium and pour the liquid into the dough, mixing only until it comes together in a ball.
Place dough on a lightly floured board and form into a log.
