I like to make pie crusts and I just happen to have a very good recipe that makes 2-3 crusts. And I thought I would share it with all of you. And I thought I'd do a tutorial while giving you the recipe. This is not a family recipe. I found the recipe on Food.net.
These are the ingredients:
3 C. flour
1 t. salt
1 C. crisco shortening
1 egg yoke save the white for a meringue
1 T. vinegar
5 T. water
4 sheets wax paper
1. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, salt and crisco. Cut crisco into the flour with a pastry blender
2. In a small dish, add yoke, vinegar and water; blend well with a fork. Add liquid to flour mixture and blend well with a fork until dough is thoroughly incorporated then use your hands to work it
together to form a ball. Divide the dough in half to make 2 balls. Place one ball between 2 sheets of waxed paper and roll it out with a rolling pin; rolling it a little larger than the size of the pie pan. Remove the top piece of waxed paper and then gently flip over the dough onto the pie pan.
The coconut pie was delish!! Happy Birthday B.!!
