Move Over Cupcakes...It's Time For A Pie Revolution
I come from a long line of pie bakers and at an early age I learned to love and appreciate pie..Later in life, when I realized that the DNA for making pies had not been passed on to me, I learned to love and appreciate pie bakers.
Chocolatesbykim, stated that cupcakes have had their 15 minutes of fame and we were in for a Pie Revolution, I rushed to signed up for the front line (actually I rushed to signed up for Kim's Pie give-away).
The Pie Revolution starts here with Kim's family recipe for pie crust and then I'm doing my part with a free printable Pie Recruiting Poster. We won't give up until we see the cupcakes waving a white flag! Let them eat Pie!
2 cups flour
1 cup shortening
2 shakes of salt
1 Tblsp sugar
1/8 tsp cinnamon
****throw everything in a Tupperware container and shake
the hell out of it (sorry, but that's how professional bakers talk).
add just enough ice water to hold it all together. Stir gently until a
ball forms, pat it into a disc, wrap in plastic and chill for at least an
hour. This allows the gluten to relax (and the cook).
** Never roll out pie crust more than twice-preferably only once.
The gluten will get overworked, and more flour is added due
