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
I'm new to paper piecing and found a great video that might help others like me that are just learning this method. I always appreciate when people share something with me that makes my life easier. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uaW26igygE
Not all 2-1/2" strips are exactly 2-1/2". Ballipops are hand cut inBali so there is some variations there.
Here's something I found that assures us 2-1/2" strips when sewn.
When sewing two strips together, rather than measuring 1/4" to the right of the needle position, I measure 2-1/4" to the left of the needle. A piece of blue painter's tape is placed along the left edge of the 2-1/4".
The fabric strips are positioned right
