Making Pies

Here is a picture of Dada helping her daddy make pie crust on Christmas Eve. She's more interested in the flour and butter as snacks than in the fine details of pie crust making, but it's a start. I'm sure before too long she'll be making light flaky crusts just like her daddy.

This year we used a combination of no-trans-fat Crisco and butter for the pie crusts and they came out really nice. In years past I've usually made all-butter crusts and they're OK but not usually quite as light as I'd like. The Crisco seemed to make the crust a bit lighter.
