Flaky Pie Pastry Donna Rickman March 2011
1 lb. crisco
5 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
Mix the previous 3 ingredients until crumbly.
Add 1 cup 7-UP or Sprite
Depending on the altitude where you live
you may need more or less....7Up/Sprite
You can play and play with this - if it starts to get stiff, just add a bit (1 tsp at a time) more 7-up and mix, roll on a floured surface quite thin. Bake at the temperature required for your pie, and cover the crust with tinfoil before baking.
Place your pastry into the freezer for a few minutes before baking - Helps with shrinkage of the pastry shell.
You can freeze this recipe for a month.
You need a 9 x 13 pan.
Dump 1 can of crushed pineapple, one can of cherry pie filling into pan. Dump one box of yellow cake mix on top. I like nuts so I dump a bag of walnuts on top of that. Cut 2 sticks of real butter into slices and dot the top of your dump pile. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
This is like a cobbler. I use a spoon to scoop a bunch out and put on a plate. This is great with ice cream on top!
