To Make the Crust:
Step 1: In a medium mixing bowl, mix flour and salt.
Step 2: Add the shortening in the middle of the flour mixture and mix until well combined.
Step 3: In another mixing bowl, add the water, egg, and vinegar. Beat until well mixed.
Step 4: Transfer the mixture over the flour mixture and stir using a fork.
Step 5: Split the dough into two. Form the first one into a circle and roll it out into 2 sheets of waxed paper.
Step 6: Invert the sheet into a pie plate and peel the second sheet to fit into the pan.
Step 7: Invert the crust over once the turkey mixture is in the pan. Make sure to seal the sides.
