    Dotty2's Note:

    The pick of the lot! This recipe was given to me many years ago by a nun who was a chef. She willingly gave me her recipe and needless to say I have never bought a pie since I got this recipe. It is never fail. The recipe is also in the company's coming cookbook---Pies. NOTE:Use this pastry for quiches, meat pies,turnovers,sausage rolls,or even small rounds.

      Dotty , my mom, a farm lady, made the best pie crust and her recipe was similiar ( only she used white sugar, I'm a chef but could never match her pastry. She always said that lard was the answer and very little handling! Will try using brown sugar. camp chef eileen
