Pi Day Pie Crust

Pie Crust 
2 cups flour 
1 tsp salt
½ cup chilled butter
1/3 cup frozen shortening
1/3 cup sugar
1 large egg beaten
1 tsp white vinegar
2 tbs ice water
Combine flour and salt, cut in butter and shortening. Stir in sugar, egg and vinegar. Mix in just enough ice water. Chill for 4 hours in plastic wrap or freezer for ½ hour. Split dough in half and place one half back in fridge. Roll out one half of dough and place in pie dish. Quickly add filling and then roll our top crust and place on top of pie. Brush top of pie with 1 egg beaten with 2tbs water and sprinkle with sugar. I like to use large grain sugar,you can purchase at Spoons n' Spice or from The Bakers Catalog.
