Stir together flour, sugar and salt with a white whip. Cut in shortening. Combine vinegar, egg and water, then pour a small amount at a time into the flour mixture, working it in with a fork. Divide into 4 ziploc bags and chill 2 hours before handling. Knead lightly and roll out onto floured board. Roll out and place into pie pan. Flute the edges. Fill if shell is to be baked with contents. If shell is for pudding pie, prick all over with a fork. Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes. If margarine is used instead of shortening, only use 1/2 teaspoon salt.
