The Family Recipe
The Crust, the foundation of the pie. It's where it all started. It was great grandma's recipe, or was it great aunt Edna's. No, it was great great grandma's. So, there's some controversy over whose it was. The only recipes that had names preserved were those from the other ladies at the church potlucks in Iowa. Regardless of how ancient is the family origins of the crust recipe, I first saw it on an old ingredient-stained faded 3 x 5 index card in mom's old wooden recipe box. The rich, flaky, and slightly tangy crust that you will be tasting provides a perfect complement to any filling from the smoothest cream to the chunkiest fruit. Please enjoy, as generations of my family have enjoyed this delectable crust. Oh, and the fillings are pretty tasty, too!
