"Best Apple Pie"


Sometimes it doesn't pay to try and use a new fancy pie plate to make a pie look good. I decided today to use one of my old pie dishes ( I bought them years ago to make sweet potato pies by the 1/2 dozen ..the kids loved eating them and it seemed never to be enough with regular pans).
It was a good decision, I was able to make and apply the crust without trouble, I remembered a secret I used to make the crust, and wondered why I didn't remember that before, hope I'm not suffering from Alzheimer's ugh! The dish brought it all back.....like I said, Life today is good"

nor fair to talk about secrets and then not even give us a hint as to what it is.

Could the secret be vinegar? You don't have to say, every woman is entitled to her secret. I was told about vinegar making a pie crust crispy a long time ago, by a dear friend's grandmother and she was right!You can tell me to mind my own business,{: Blessings, Kathleen

Kathleen, never heard of using vinegar, but it would be worth a try, (and we are our brothers keepers :o). Ginny
