Directions:
Whisk together flour, sugar and salt in a medium sized bowl. Cut butter into small cubes. Rub the Crisco completely into the dry ingredients with your fingers. Then rub the cold butter cubes into the mixture until it resembles cornmeal mixed with pea sized bits of butter. (If the mixtures starts to get warm and sticky, refrigerate it to chill.) Beat the egg with the water, then drizzle it evenly over the dough. Lightly stir the dough together with a fork or by hand. The dough should just hold together when you squeeze it together, with some dry crumbly bits around the ball. If dough gets too dry, sprinkle a little cold water over mixture. Makes enough dough for a 2 crust pie.
