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
Do I have any peers in this group?
I'm severely dyslexic and ADD. I have enormous trouble with space and direction. For these reasons (and because I'm so hard of hearing) I've never taken a quilting lesson; I can't follow a printed pattern. I look at quilts I like and recreate them by "figuring it out," that is, cutting up as many specific squares, triangles, etc. as it looks like I'll need and then either cutting more or saving the extras.
This works pretty
