This pie has long been a hit here. It is so popular it would be impossible to take it off the menu.—Buffalo Mountain Lodge, Bannff, Alberta
- 5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

- In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Whisk egg, vinegar and water; sprinkle over dry ingredients and toss. If needed, add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough can be formed into a ball. Divide into four balls. Cover and chill for 30 minutes.
