    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.

    Thos would make about 6 single layer 9=inch crust or 3 covered pies. I've been using this method for years minus the baking powder. A tablespoon of lemon juice by cup of water can replace the 7UP or Sprite. I consider it as a no-fail recipe.
