Can I substitute lemon juice for vinegar in my pie crust?
I have a wonderful pie crust recipe (the best I've found) that calls for a teaspoon of vinegar. (I think this helps to keep the crust tender, I have seen this in other pie crust recipes.)
I need to make a pie crust tonight, but don't have any white vinegar in the house.
Do you think I could use a teaspoon of lemon juice instead, since it's also an acid?
Any bakers out there know the answer to this?
Thanks in advance!

vinegar is not an acid, its a base. so i dont think it will turn out as successful, but there are many recipes that dont call for vinegar that im sure you could find on the internet. (foodnetwork.com)
